Rimbey, a pretty little town located in the heart of rural Alberta remains a solid symbol of good old fashioned friendliness, where walking the extra mile to help anyone, whether they are a stranger or a friend, is a given.

In Rimbey and the surrounding area, several activities and events are ongoing, providing fun and enjoyable outings for the entire family.

The picturesque and charming Pas-Ka-Poo Park is home to many of Rimbey’s historical buildings and includes museums, a pavilion and an enclosed playground.
