Local Facilities

Milk River has a full complement of facilities to offer our citizens a number of opportunities.  Our community stands proud because of them!

The two schoolyards, Block 39 Park, ball diamonds and the Kinsmen Park provide a concentrated amount of open space in the north central part of town. A campground, picnic area and the tourist information centre are located on the southeast end of town, making them very accessible to tourists.
