Outdoor Public Skating Rink In Water Valley Still a Go!
Did you know we are currently working on building a permanent OUTDOOR SKATING RINK while building the new hall... We have a $32,000 grant that will go towards the estimated $40,000 in concrete... That means we are only $8,000 dollars away from having a Skating Rink! Next year we will be applying for grants to cover the costs of lighting, new boards and other expenses and using the old boards temporarily until further funding is acquired.
THEDETAILS: The Rink is located in the North West corner of the Community Association property and is 120' long by 60' wide. We are currently cribbing for concrete and prepping to pour, and are in need of a volunteer team to help through the many stages of construction and completion.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED?? If YOU or someone you know would like to VOLUNTEER with this project please contact Ted Palendat. All DONATIONS will be HAPPILY excepted and can be dropped off at the Water Valley general store! A tax deductible Charitable Donations Receipt will be written for all donations over $25 dollars.

"When you volunteer, you are not paid in money or recognition, you are paid in LOVE. People may forget what you SAID and people may forget what you DID, but they will never forget how it made them FEEL." ~Women on Call
A few words...
Are we so quaint & tiny we go unnoticed? Is there a black hole we sneak into off Highway 22 North as we turn the 8 km to get to our little treasure?
The answer is yes to all. We are a well kept secret that is loved by those day trippers who know, and guarded by the few who can call it home. We get to live in a postcard and in the winter in a snow globe.
Our '4-way stop' is historic, rustic, thoughtful and slow.
All these things are what we enjoy the most about it, and we promise it's what you will notice too.
Life in a small town means you know your neighbors so everyone is friendlier and more invested. Our businesses are small and run by families who believe in community in all sense of the word. We have an amazing golf course, hardware store, general store, antique & reclaimed furniture boutique, gift shop, Italian restaurant, a Meadery, and adorable events church, a library, a western saloon famous for its tradition Wednesday wing nights, a rustic liquor store, a calendar of events like the Celtic-Folk Festival, Water Valley Days, Art Shows and our picturesque Water Valley Rodeo. William J. Bagnall Wilderness Park, a swimming hole with a rope swing, endless Instagram worthy hiking trails, and sunsets that can knock your socks off.
Seriously, if you have never come, it's time to get out here...
