Children can have fun in the community playgrounds and learn in the nearby schools. They can even have the best of both worlds in local programs like the 1st Okotoks Scouts. The group has been teaching kids survival skills and practical life lessons for 60 years running.
The whole family can also enjoy activities together. There is the Kite Festival in Riverside Park that even families from Foothills and Calgary participate in. Various other events and activities are held throughout the year to keep the community life vibrant.
