Recreation Facilities

LOTS to do in Bow Island!

Bow Island is packed with things to do, all you have to do is look for them. From hunting upland game (ducks, geese, pheasant) with local guides or fishing for walleye in the Forty Mile Reservoir.

For those looking for family activities, look for the seasonal Bow Island Swimming Pool, walk out on the greens of the Bow Island Golf Club for 9 holes, or spend an evening down at the Bowling Alley.

Bow Island Golf Club

Complete with lounge and PRO shop, The Bow Island Golf Course is located in the south eastern area of Bow Island. The beautiful view of the prairies and the surrounding trees makes this grass green 9 hole golf course something to remember.

The Bow Island Golf Club is also home to the world's largest putter! For further information please call (403) 545-2718
