home for about 300 friendly people who enjoy the fact life here can be as tranquil or as active as they choose.
In the Summer the population of the village triples as we celebrate Coutts Days, a weekend of homecomings, slowpitch tournament, a parade, pancakes, fireworks, and the Coutts Grass Rodeo.
Sit in the shade and read a book from the Coutts library while the kids play in the spray park. Stop off for ice cream to enjoy on your walk home at the end of a hot summer day. As you pass the tennis courts, think about challenging your neighbour to a match some evening.
Winter brings the Community Light Up when everyone celebrates with a pot luck supper, hayrides and of course Santa.
We have numerous active groups in the area such as 4-H, Coutts district Seniors Club, Southern Alberta Outdoorsman, Curtain Call of Milk River and District live theatre, Rodeo Club, Book Club, Further Education community courses, to mention a few.
Our volunteer fire department and medical first responder service is among the best, and we are just ten minutes away from the Milk River Hospital and Medical Clinic, which also has Long Term Care Facilities. The Prairie Rose Lodge in Milk River offers comfortable independant living for seniors in our area.
If you want to come visit us, Writing on Stone Provincial Park and Gold Springs Park offer many serviced and non-serviced camping sites, or make a reservation at the Double Tree Motel in Coutts. For an inexpensive RV stop look no further than the RV Park right in Coutts. When making a trip south of the border, many travellers leave their four legged companions at Coutts Crossing Horse and Hound boarding facility. We've got space for the whole family!
Come to Coutts and experience all we have to offer. Once you see our sunrise, you may just want to stay.
