Located in the Central Parkland Region on both sides of the Alberta-Saskatchewan border, Lloydminster is a beautiful little city with a lot for visitors to see and do.
Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy spending time in Bud Miller All Season Park. The park is a great place for hiking, bird watching and fishing. There are areas for horseshoes, lawn bowling, mini golf, and volleyball. The park also contains a soccer pitch, skateboard park and tennis courts. In the winter months, the park is a popular destination for ice fishing, skating, tobogganing and cross-country skiing. The park is also home to the Lloydminster Leisure Centre, which has a wave pool, waterslide and fitness centre.
In addition, Lloydminster has several municipal parks with playgrounds, baseball diamonds, basketball courts and trails for walking and biking. Lake V Park is a designated no-leash park that allows pet owners to let their furry friends run free. Weaver Park is equipped with campsites and a mini golf course.
Golfers will enjoy playing 18 holes at the Lloydminster Golf and Country Club, a semi-private club with reasonable greens fees.
