A prairie oasis of greenery springs up amongst the vast grain fields in east central Alberta. You have come to Forestburg! A diverse landscape- the flat farmland yields south and west to trees and grazing cattle. A short drive south reveals the beautiful Battle River Valley.
A vibrant community with a variety of commercial businesses and well kept homes. Recreation is abundant – swimming pool, hockey arena, tennis courts, golf course, dance studio, theater, curling, choir, seniors centre, and playgrounds. Modern school for kindergarten to grade 12.
We are home to the unique Battle River Railway. Employment in the area is from agriculture, oil and gas, power generation, and coal mining.
Forestburg has participated in Communities in Bloom since 1998 winning Provincial Editions and 2 National Editions. Our village is tidy, community pride is abundant, and our summer floral displays throughout the town are amazing!
