A gentle mix of rolling hills and prairie provide grand, breathtaking vistas in this land of endless sky and days filled with sunshine. Add to those blessings a near perfect union of wilderness, small-town life with big-city amenities, and industry to find the County of Grande Prairie.
Located in Alberta’s northwest, the County of Grande Prairie stretches east from the British Columbia border to the Smoky River, and south from the Saddle Hills to the Wapiti River. Covered partly with a lush, mixed forest, and with the rich, dark soil that makes grain farming a natural here, the County of Grande Prairie is sprinkled with small towns and hamlets. The ease and welcome of the communities of Sexsmith and Clairmont to the north, Wembley, Beaverlodge and Hythe to the west, Valhalla Centre and LaGlace to the northwest, Teepee Creek to the northeast, Bezanson to the east, and Elmworth to the southwest are found within the first established county in Alberta. Within its borders also lies the City of Grande Prairie, that along with the County, creates a vibrant regional service centre for northwestern Alberta, northeastern British Columbia and the Northwest Territories. – less
