A day to relax
O'Brian Park is just outside of Grande Prairie, and is a great day use area. There is a park for kids, campfire areas, free wood to use, and outhouses. The park is alongside the Wapiti River. Most summers it is low enough to swim in, or take the dogs swimming in! You can also fish, or boat, in the river.
As its only about 5 minutes outside of Grande Prairie, this is the perfect picnic spot, or midnight swim area!

A taste of local talent
The Grande Prairie Live Theatre is always holding plays, musicals, and concerts in town in two locations.
These plays are all done by local talent, directed locally, the sets built locally, and all by volunteers. Its amazing what these people can do with a little wood and paint and a lot of imagination!
I have been to three of the plays held in town, and stage managed another one. It is fun to go and watch, and relatively cheap. As well, the Christmas play, which runs for 5 weeks usually, has a supper included with it. And Encore, which is the lounge in the theatre, offers drinks before, and after the play.
