Paradise Valley, located 50 km southwest of Lloydminster or south of Kitscoty on Hwy 897, has a long and rich agricultural history. The town was once host to six grain elevators along the rail line. Now only one still stands, having been converted to the Climb Through Time Museum.
Early settlers suggested the name Paradise Valley because of the rolling prairie, and the poplar and willow trees that surround the community. Paradise Valley is the home of the Three Cities Arena, the site of the Three Cities Recreational Park complete with campground, playground and rodeo grounds as well as the site of the annual Three Cities Fair. (Three Cities refers to Paradise Valley and the nearby hamlets of McLaughlin and Rivercourse).
Work on polishing your game at the 9 hole golf course. In winter grab your skis and snowboards and head northeast of Paradise Valley to Mount Joy Snow Resort - a family fun facility.
