Celebrate the Holiday Season

Christmas may be over but the holiday season continues in Ponoka's Lions Centennial Park. Click below for full details about our holiday light display that continues until the end of February!

Lions Centennial Park Christmas LightsThe annual Christmas light display is on now at Lions Centennial Park. This light display is bigger and brighter than ever this year, thanks to a $5,000 donation from the Ponoka Lions Club. In fact, the actual number of Christmas lights has doubled compared to last year.

You can take a stroll and marvel at the beauty of the tens of thousands of festive lights throughout the park. The light display will continue throughout the winter until the end of February.

Skating Trail at Lions Centennial Park

The skating trail is open and can be accessed from the north-end gazebo at Centennial Park. Park benches and rubber mats have been installed to provide citizens with a place to lace up and take off their skates.

The skating trail was built by the Ponoka County East District Fire Department in conjunction with Town of Ponoka Operations crews. The Town of Ponoka would like to thank the Ponoka County East District Fire Department for their time and equipment this year in making the skating trail possible.

Throughout the winter, the Fire Department will continue flooding the ice surface and Town of Ponoka crews will clear snow along the trail as needed.

Please note that the ice trail is for public skating only. Hockey is not permitted.
