Magrath was founded in 1898 and has been known since its founding as “The Garden City.” The community is also known for its excellent schools, its natural beauty and its outstanding quality of life.
Historically Magrath is unique in the sense that it is based on two model community traditions: the “Plat of Zion” and the British “Garden City” tradition. Magrath is an outlier in many ways and is continuing to reinforce and learn from these two utopian approaches to community building. It continues to focus on its Vision Statement:
“Uniting to build the world’s best community.”
The pool was scheduled to close on Friday August 28th but will now be open on Saturday from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm for our final day of the season.
Thanks to all the lifeguards for their work and care at the pool this season. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year!
As the new school season approaches, this is a good time to talk about traffic, seatbelt, and other bylaw enforcement in our community. Everyone should be aware that our Peace Officers as well as our RCMP and regional Sheriffs are there to ensure the safety of our citizens of all ages, and we encourage all community residents to wear their seatbelts and to obey all posted signage throughout our community, and in our school and playground zones particularly. Our Peace Officers have also been working to control heavy truck parking and traffic to preserve the integrity of our local roads, and this work will be continuing. We would also like to thank community residents who have been working with our officers to address a number of unsightly premises issues. Our community is looking better, and although there is much we can do to further beautify our properties and community generally, we appreciate what each of you and our staff have been doing to spruce up our community over the summer.
If you have questions about any aspect of this, please do not hesitate to contact our Peace Officers directly 403-715-8513, or any of us here at the Town office 403-758-3212.
