North American Van Lines: A number one choice when it comes to Grande Cache moving companies.The town of Grande Cache, Alberta came into existence considerably more recently than most other towns. The Alberta Government found that a town would be necessary to open an area in western Alberta for the development of coal mines. As a result, construction for Grande Cache began in 1969 with the first essential establishments and set of homes being built by 1971. After the necessary growth and development, the community achieved town status on September 1, 1983. In its early years, however, Grande Cache faced some difficulty with maintaining consistent momentum due to its dependence on coal as a resource and driver of economy in the town. Within no time, additional industries came up in the area, leading to a much more diversified and stable economic situation for the town’s residents and a greater opportunity for continued improvement in the coming years.
Outside of Grande Cache’s primary industry, coal, the town also draws a large amount of interest in the outdoor recreational opportunities offered by its close proximity to Willmore Wilderness Park and other similar areas of interest. Taking in the scenery within the park should not be an issue, as Willmore features a strict prohibition of the use of motor vehicles on the property. Of course, what better way is there to explore an expansive area of wilderness and natural beauty than by foot, horseback, or mountain bike? The collection of sites contained within the park includes the Sulphur Gates, Berland River, Cowlick Creek, and Rock Lake, which all allow both hunting and fishing for those who like a bit of challenge in their outdoor activity.
Within Grande Cache, there are also a number of recreational activities available for residents who may not be the type to go hiking or exploring in the wilderness surrounding the town. At the Grande Cache Recreation Centre, residents can make good use of the larger sport activities and a sizeable Aquatics Facility, which allows residents to seize the opportunity to take advantage of a six-lane competition pool, two diving boards, whirl pool, sauna, steam room, and leisure pool with beach entry.
