WHO WE ARE

A quiet, humble farming community located a short 100km (1 hour) drive NE of Medicine Hat, AB, just minutes over the Saskatchewan border.  Be on the lookout for deer and antelope as you drive the 21 kilometers of Highway 371 from Fox Valley to Richmound. Though small, Richmound has a lot to offer.

 

Throughout the summer, flower gardens are beautiful as residents take part in Communities in Bloom. You will find a unique wall mural on Main Street at "Bob's Garage". There is a museum and archives room located in the Rural Municipality office. This museum is available by appointment and on special occasions. The Chinook Corner Library is also located in this building.

 

Richmound has a very active Lion's Club which meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month, except in July and August. St Mary's Church holds services on the weekends.

 

In the center of town you will find the confectionary/convenience store attached to the post office. Next to that you will find the notice board which announces the local activities. There is fuel station available on the east end of town.

The Village is fortunate to have both Fire & Medical Emergency Services located right in town with 3 hospitals within a 1 hour radius.

Richmound still hosts local Richmound Rockets baseball games throughout the spring & summer, has spacious ball diamonds, and an off-least dog park.  In the winter there is a large indoor skating rink/arena.  Curling takes place just 15 minutes down the road in Fox Valley where the local children also attend the school.

 

Camping and boating enthusiasts will enjoy McLaren Lake Regional Park which is located less than a half hour SW of Richmound. Richmound is also located near the Great Sand Hills.

 

Well worth a visit.
