About the Project
The Trout Pond (located at 3200 Trout Pond AVE) and West Trail Extension project is an effort between the Town and a number of organizations to revitalize and restock the old trout pond west of Taber. The pond used to be an area where residents and visitors could enjoy the local landscape and catch a few fish. The Town of Taber decided in 2017 that this project would provide an added recreational venue to our area, where people could catch fish, use non-motorized boats on the pond, camp, and enjoy kilometers of walking trails. Therefore, the decision was made to begin construction on the project in a number of phases.
Breaking the project into phases allows the Town to make the endeavor fiscally responsible by allowing us to apply for grants that are specific to each phase.
You can find important information on this project below, and updates will be added as they come available.
