Only 15 minutes north of St. Albert on Highway 2, you’ll find Morinville - a modern, young, vibrant community, offering a rich history and comfortable atmosphere.
Morinville is an active community, providing all the recreational opportunities that one typically finds in larger populations. Enjoy our beautiful parks, excellent sports facilities, paved walking trails, or spend the day fishing at our annually stocked Fish and Game Pond. Among many other activities Morinville offers skating, hockey, curling, tennis, baseball and soccer just to name a few.
Take some time to view the numerous historic homes scattered throughout downtown, experience the stained glass in the St. Jean Baptiste church or visit the Musée Morinville Museum. Go shopping in the quaint shops or check out the great food at local restaurants. There is always something to do.
This is a family environment where children play, attend excellent schools with bilingual opportunities and enjoy year round festivals and events. With close to 70 service clubs, groups and organizations, volunteer involvement is abundant!
Come share our history as we celebrate 100 years! Join us in our yearlong celebration, with exciting seasonal activities. The Snowman, St. Jean Baptiste and Christmas Festivals are hosted by the community every year and several new events will be added as we commemorate our 100th Anniversary.
