Welcome to the Town of Milk River!  I invite you to join us in taking part in a vibrant community and a remarkable quality of life.


We have been blessed with an original history, warm climate, and an abundance of natural beauty.  Ours is a close-knit community which understands the need to provide our friends and neighbors with a friendly, clean and safe place to call home.  We are also proud of the fact that our children can walk to school, that our senior citizens provide a sense of heritage and foundation for the community, and that our golfers enjoy a long season and low scores!  Milk River is truly a community built on friends, families and small town charm.


Milk River is a full service municipality with amenities you would find in much larger centres.  Nestled in the heart of the prairies, we are home to numerous outdoor recreational opportunities and boast excellent schools (K-12), a local airport, golf course, curling rink, hospital, library, outdoor swimming pool, financial and professional institutions, a number of churches, restaurants, retail stores, parks, campgrounds and more!  We offer our citizens and tourist friends tremendous options.  Also, situated less than 10 minutes from the United States border, and embedded on a major provincial transportation route close to the City of Lethbridge, Milk River is primed for success.  Couple that with affordable housing, one of the lowest cost of living indexes in the province, and a strong economy and you see why I am excited about what the future holds!


So come, enjoy everything that Milk River has to offer!
