Aquaplex Modernization

The Town of Drumheller regretfully announces that there will be a further delay to the opening of the Aquaplex and as a result the pool will not open until further notice.

While preparing the pool for the opening, staff noticed that there was a loss of water from the pool that could not be accounted for. Town staff along with the contractor's staff worked over the weekend and throughout the day - today to locate the issue without success.

"The leak is significant enough that we cannot heat the water while maintaining the water level," stated Darryl Drohomerski, CAO for the Town of Drumheller "this means we cannot keep the pool filled or warm enough for patrons to use."

"Unfortunately until we locate, isolate and repair the link we cannot have a date for the pool opening; added Paul Salvatore, Director of Community Services, "once we have an idea of where the leak is, we will be able to give a more certain timeline for reopening the pool."

The Town of Drumheller will extend Aquaplex memberships by the length of the closure. "We recognise the inconvenience that the closure of the indoor pool causes regular users and we want to apologise for the delay," said Drohomerski, "obviously, everyone involved in this project is extremely disappointed, but we are working as quickly as possible to correct the problem so that we can open as soon as possible."

Trail of Trees lights up the Badlands Community Facility now with the Family Fun Committee!


The Town of Drumheller, the Badlands Community Facility and Family Fun Committee invite you to celebrate the magic of the holiday season and the spirit of giving with us. Between Dec 1st and Dec 18th the Badlands Community Facility will be decking it’s halls with beautiful Christmas trees, turning the community facility into a magical Christmas dreamland.

The Town of Drumheller invites businesses, community organizations and families to donate and decorate an artificial Christmas tree which will be displayed in the Trail of Trees at the Badlands Community Facility. Last year you may remember the trees being donated to families in need. This year, we will host a silent auction for the trees, with the proceeds going to Jumpstart. The community has identified that youth programs, transportation and equipment can be expensive. So this year, we give back to the youth! Additionally, we will have availability if trees to those who may not have a tree for Christmas, and will ensure that they do this year through confidential communication through FCSS.

The event will be launched on Friday Dec 1st with a fun community event with people checking out the trees, carolers singing and hot chocolate and cookies. Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus will also be making a special trip from the North Pole! Family Fun Committee, FCSS and The Drumheller Public Library will be setting up some fun things to do throughout the facility, as well as hosting a Christmas themed movie in the field house, in lieu of "Movie Under the Stars" that got cancelled back in September due to inclimate weather. 

Why should you take part?

  • This is a wonderful opportunity for businesses and organizations to promote themselves to the 300+ people a day going through the BCF.
  • Your business will be recognized as a business with a great community spirit as they give to those most in need this holiday season.
  • Proceeds from the Tree Auction go toward Canadian Tire Jumpstart program that will help supplement youth in recreation programs
  • The cost of a tree and the decorations offers great value for money; creating a greater return than traditional advertising

Your role in the program:

  • Contact Erica Crocker at the Badlands Community Facility to register your spot
  • Donate a tree, bring it to the BCF and decorate it on Friday Dec 1 from 10:00AM– 7:00PM.
  • Your decorations can link with your business or be more of the traditional decorations or a mixture of the 2. If you would rather keep your decorated tree, that is fine too!


We will:

  • Promote the event and highlight all the businesses and organizations which take part in this great program
  • Create labels for each tree stating the company who donated it
  • To provide all the power needed to run lights
  • Run a silent auction for the 18 days the trees are up, with all proceeds going to Drumheller Canadian Tire’s Jumpstart Program, to assist families with youth in need!
  • Have an evening with Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus on December 1st from 5:00PM – 7:00PM, as well as complimentary snacks with a movie provided by the Family Fun Committee to follow
  • Offer a confidential platform to families in need of a Christmas tree to ensure they have one this year!

“This event has proven very successful in other communities, so we wanted to do something similar. The Town of Drumheller is very excited to put their own flare into this festive initiative.” says Darren Goldthorpe Manager of Arts Culture and Recreation. “We had so much success last year; we hope to keep this a running tradition for years to come.”  



There will be a planned power outage on Wednesday November 1, 2017 from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. from East Coulee to Fish Lake.

Habitat in Drumheller

Following the generous donation of land on Poplar Street by a private citizen, Habitat searched for champions in the community and people who cared deeply about helping local families build long-term stability through affordable home ownership. The regional Habitat committee was formally established in May 2016. This local group of caring individuals are working to be champions for Habitat and raise funds for the first Habitat build Drumheller in the spring/summer of 2018.

With this first build next year, we will be looking for qualifying homeowners. We have three primary criteria: Demonstrated need, the ability to take on an affordable mortgage through Habitat and the related expenses of home ownership, and a willingness to partner with Habitat.

For more information on Habitat and our work in Drumheller, or to learn more about Habitat home ownership, please visit

We will be hosting an Open House on Tuesday October 3rd, 2017. Please watch this web site for more information.
