The Regional Recreation Board supervises and advises County Council on matters pertaining to recreation with the County of Stettler.

The board has the right to elect their own officers, arrange their own schedule of meetings, and is required to prepare and annually submit a budget to County Council in November.


The County of Stettler Regional Recreation Board was established in 1974 by a group of concerned citizens who wanted to develop a coordinated effort to the development of recreation programs and facilities within the County of Stettler.

The Regional Recreation Board consists of nine electoral districts, each of which have an appointed representative who sits on the Regional Recreation Board. The Villages of Big Valley, Donalda, and the Summer Village of Rochon Sands also have a representative stated in the signed agreement. In addition, the Stettler Agricultural Society has a representative on the board. The villages pay a recreation requisition to the Regional Recreation Board for the services of the board.


Over the years the Regional Recreation Board was responsible for distributing recreation dollars that were granted on a per capita basis for various projects within the county. This has helped establish some of the best facilities available in rural Alberta. In the early 1990's, the grants from the provincial government disappeared and the board downsized to part-time staff. The board presently distributes funds in the form of operational assistance grants that assist communities and groups with their facility operational expenses.

In addition the board reviews and makes recommendations to council on grant applications made under the Recreational Special Project Fund.
