Black Diamond Things to Do

  • River Float

    On a hot summer day people take full advantage of the Sheep river. It is a great place to go swimming, sunning, fishing ( though I have yet to see a fish in the water), kayaking, and floating on tubes down the river. The water is too shallow for motor sports which makes it nice to not be bothered by yahoos with engines. The water is super clean and...

  • Art Gallery

    If you happen to be driving through town and stop in for a cuppa joe then wander along the main drag and stop in at the BlueRock Gallery. It tries to maintain a 100 mile art "diet" featuring only local artists and artisans. It has lots of neat little things you can purchase- pottery, soap, necklaces, cards, and a fun selection of books from local...

  • Erratic

    Smack dab between Okotoks and Black Diamond lies a treasure. An erratic that is between 520-600 million years old! It was carried here on an ice glacier from Jasper park and dumped off at it's final resting place. This rock was here before the Rocky mountains were even formed. The area it lies in has been donated to the public so there is no...


Black Diamond Restaurants

  • Indian Food

    Indian Buffet. They offer menu items and though the menu is small if you are familiar with Inidan cuisine and request a dish not on the menu they will make it for you. The buffet features tandoori chicken cooked right outside on a BBQ. It is a treat for sure. Tandoori Chicken cooked fresh on a BBQ right outside the door.

  • Donair Pizza!

    Little two for one pizza joint. They make some pretty yummy pizza. A must try is the donair pizza! It's too good for words. Pricey for a pizza about $27 for two but oh so worth it. It comes loaded with mozarella - like a slab of cheese, garlic, donair sauce, donair meat and tomatoes. It is to die for. People drive in from Okotoks just to get this...

  • Pizza!

    Cute little pizza joint that offers clazones, pizza, subs, hot dogs fries, wings and ice cream. They have a little patio and this place is busy all the time at night. It's probably the busiest little place in town.

  • Best Burger Joint

    Marv's Soda Shop is a throw back to the 1950's diner. He re-created classsic ice cream soda fountain drinks and sundaes along with home made burgers. His burgers are all local home grown beef and he makes the patties himself. Try the peanut butter burgers- they are fantastic. We were skeptical at first but now we love them! And the sundaes. yum.

  • For Coffee Addicts.

    This place is the local hub for coffee drinkers. It has all the fixings of a coffe addicts needs; lattes, espresso, organic coffee, and sweets. Everything to eat is made on site- all the baking and lunch items. The place is decorated in a mish-mash of tables and chairs and it is a welcoming vibe to go in with your computer and putter around. Oh and...

  • Yummy Treats

    This bakery is by far one of the best I have eatten at. 90% of everything is made on site- bear claws, turn-overs, cinnamon doughnuts, cake doughnuts, cookies, cheese bread stuffed with local pepperettes, chili and lunch items. Too many to describe. You can't walk away with just one item. The apple fritters are greasy as hell but that's what makes...


Black Diamond Shopping

  • All your needs.

    Pharmasave is the local drug store. So you can find all your daily needs but it also has a small gift store section, purses, some scarves, dresses, jewlery, movies and baby gifts. So if you are in town you can take a gander at this drug store. I find it hard living in a small town to get vegan products. This store stocks a good variety of vegan...

  • Funky stuff.

    This is the local import store for hippies and other funky people. It has a variety of funky jewelry, clothing, purses, local hand made body products and little home decore items. The staff is amazingly friendly and the prices are very reasonable. Purses and clothing from nepalorgainc clothinghome made soap, perfumesone of a kind necklaces from...

  • bling
