Outdoor Activities in Montgomery
Ready to get active? Montgomery is nestled along the banks of the beautiful Bow River, making it an active community with several ways to get out there and explore the great outdoors. Rent everything you need from Sports Rent, from mountain bikes and stand-up paddle boards to camping gear, rollerblades, and rafts for a day on the water.
The Paddle Station is another easy way to get out on the Bow River with self-guided rafting and kayaking options available for rent. They provide all the equipment and safety gear, launching right from Shouldice Park. Montgomery is a cycling friendly community too, with bike paths that will take you from the Bow River to downtown or through the neighbourhood to the ice cream shop.
Shouldice Park is a key feature of the neighbourhood, with 28 hectares of family fun, picnic sites, soccer fields, tennis courts, batting cages, and easy access to the Bow River. It’s also home to a major athletic park, with three regulation size artificial turf fields, ready for soccer, football, softball, and baseball, along with the Shouldice Aquatic Centre and Shouldice Arena too.
The Jumpstart Inclusive Playground Project is 15,000 square feet of accessible playground everyone can enjoy and one of several inclusive playgrounds built by Canadian Tire across Canada. Built in 2018, this innovative playground space makes it possible for kids of all abilities to play together. Just one more reason Montgomery is a hidden gem.
Restaurants and Dining in Montgomery
Local favourites and everyday essentials are easy to find in Montgomery. Neighbourhood dining options like Aksa Wiener Schnitzel Haus, Pazzer’s Saskatchewan Pub, Five Spice Kitchen, Papa Nikolas Pizza, and Abbey’s Creations are must-visit restaurants. Or make a reservation at the award-winning NOtaBLE, a comfortable dining experience with an open kitchen so you can watch the wood-burning rotisserie turn. Start with the steak tartare, try the daily rotisserie special or the classic beef brisket cheeseburger with bacon, cheddar, onion, and house pickles, on a sesame bun, and finish it all off with the dark chocolate hazelnut opera cake.
Dog Friendly Montgomery
This is one dog-friendly neighbourhood! It starts with great veterinary services and includes all the fun stuff too, like all natural pet food at Bon A-Pet-Treat! Pet Store & Bakery. Order a custom birthday cake for your four-legged friend or treat them to specialty ice cream and popsicles. You can even get your car and dog washed at the same time with Happy Bays Car and Dog Wash, with self-serve dog wash bays to pamper your pup, including aprons to keep you dry and milk bones to keep them happy. Or give your dog a mini-vacation too with K9 to 5 Dog Daycare, a great way to keep your dog active and happy while you explore the city.
Light Up Montgomery
Community events bring neighbourhoods together and Light Up Montgomery does just that. This annual holiday event is traditionally held during the last weekend of November, with large fire pits, hot chocolate, apple cider, and s’mores for everyone to enjoy. Get an Instagram-worthy family photo and take in the lights in the park at the corner of Home Road and Bowness Road. It’s the start of a new family tradition. This year’s Light Up Montgomery kicks off November 27, 2021, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
