Peenaquim Park is a large river valley park with extensive areas of open river valley and natural coulee terrain. If your dog loves to run, the large off-leash area is a pleasure to visit for both pets and their owners. The Peenaquim dog run offers both an open and enclosed option for exercising your dogs off-leash. The enclosed training area is for socializing young dogs and dogs that may not be ready for being off-leash outside the fenced area. It is for use by owners and dogs who are playing and training together. Please remember to clean up after your dog and remain within the signed areas for off-leash activities.
The Parks Department tree mulching area is located near the off-leash park and mulch is available for all residents of Lethbridge to pick up for their personal landscaping.
As you progress further into the park you will see the Oldman River (the western boundary of the park), and to the east is the fenced Lethbridge Fish and Game Shooting Sports Facility. The Facility hosts competitions, police training and recreational shooting. A membership is required to access the Shooting Sports Facility and a Firearms Marshall must be present for any shooting to occur.
Softball Valley, a premier 9 diamond slow-pitch complex, is located at the south end of the park. There is a clubhouse with concession and licensed lounge, covered playground, eight fenced diamonds and one premier competition ball diamond with covered spectator area and lights for night games. Softball Valley is a premier Western Canadian Softball Facility and is home to a number of leagues and tournaments throughout the year. For more information or to book at a diamond at Softball Valley contact the Lethbridge Softball Association at www.softballvalley.com.
There are two regulation beach volleyball courts available for drop-in play.
