I watched others kayak, canoe, backpack, and horseback ride ....... I did none of these things! But, with the assistance and insistence of my hostess, I did attempt rollerblading for the very first time!!!
Okay, scarey for me, but not so bad that I'll never do it again :) Just grab some blades and head on over to the city park, or any bit of surfacing you find appropriate, and give it a roll .....
Protective euipment as desired

Mini Links also has the best ice cream place in Grande Prairie in the summer - excellent shakes, sundaes, and they are always stocked on blue bubblegum ice cream!

Apparently, as seen in the pic, they also rent bikes here.

This is a great, kid friendly golf course. No dress code, slower pace, and smaller than the classy courses. This is the place to go when you want to laugh and drink beer!
