The Galt Museum packs in a lot of information about Alberta in a colorful and interesting way. The exhibition space has displays on the First Peoples, European settlers, and Chinese, Japanese, and Russian immigrants. The economic base is also explored from bison coats, to coal, and agriculture. The importance of water is also highlighted. I thought that some of the audio explanations were a little too long.

Fort Whoop-Up is a replica of an original fur trading fort built in the late 1800s. We explore the history, cultures, and traditions of the communities that lived in the region in the time the original Fort Whoop-Up was built and operated. We bring to life the experiences and lives of tribes, traders and more in this historic fort.
This is a small taste of the local history. There are interactive staff members who show you historical skills and answer questions. The fort displays are wonderful. The fort is also close to the Nature Center and the Galt Museum so it is easy to see all three in a few hours.

This is a beautiful park with a rich history. There are lots of great paths (suitable for walking or biking) throughout. My personal recommendation, however, would be to stop in at the Fort (also located beside the park) and take the horse and wagon ride. This usually includes a guided tour that will explain the history of both the battle that took place in this area, as well as the history of the steel train bridge. This is one of those stops that is ideal if you just want to take 30 minutes and stretch your legs OR if you want to spend a couple of hours and dig a little deeper.

The building is beautiful and eco, too. Climb the stairs to the roof to check out the view and enjoy the garden.

Overall feel of this casino borders on dated. Machines will keep you interested but won't make you want to live there. Restaurant is extremely inconsistent. I've have very good breakfast, lunch, & dinners there but also some of the very worst as well. The ONLY sure thing at this casino is the service in the restaurant is aweful. You wait forever to be seated, then are left forever before anyone asks if you've been served. After the food hits the table you will never see your waitress again. If you have alot of time on your hands roll the dice and try it. Food $$ are fair for portion size.

Lethbridge has some of the best urban parks I've ever seen (and I've travelled the world over and over again), and Sheran is most definitely one of the pearls. I can't recommend this park enough for a picnic, a walk, and most importantly for their extremely well designed and meticulously kept train-themed playground. Kudos Lethbridge Parks Dept.! We try to shun the Playgrounds that don't feature rubber surfacing so for us on the West side it's just Sheran and the Gerald Probe Elementary Playgrounds that fulfil the requirements. The only complaint I have is that the playground is a looooooooooong way away from the parking lots, but I guess the flip side is that it's best to keep the kids away from the cars!

Great atmosphere, even had live music. Nice job on the layout of the brewery and restaurant. Service was average/good, food was average. Ordered the lettuce wraps which featured a bbq flavored pork, pickled onions, a peanut sauce and scant crushed peanuts. The lettuce wrap combination of ingredients just doesn't work well. I had only one beer, a stout and enjoyed it. I would rate this as average at this time but would not hesitate to go back and try it again.

This park is a little gem in which to have a picnic, or just wander around and explore nature. You can also rent the kitchen area and have a huge picnic or BBQ (My daughter had her wedding ceremony and reception there a few years ago, and it was great!
