Town of Two Hills
Only 1.5 hours from Edmonton, Two Hills, with a population of over 1,400 is a unique multi-cultural community. Once settled by European pioneers, now it has many Mennonite families who give the community a distinctive Mexican flare amongst its shopping and dining establishments. The Town got its name from the two prominent hills on the western outskirts of the community.
ATTRACTIONS & EVENTSPioneer Park in Two Hills features a bronze statue of local pioneers, Mr. and Mrs. Dowhaniuk, commemorating 100 years of Ukrainian settlement. The Two Hills Historical Society outdoor museum along Highway 36 features a display and items used by the pioneers of the area. Around town you can enjoy the sports facilities, several playgrounds, arena, a youth centre and a swimming pool that is open year-round. There are several community events that take place throughout the year. Growing in popularity is the Agri-Day & Tradeshow at Two Hills Centennial Hall. Bikers are always welcome at the Run to the Hills Rally. Proceeds from this event have been used to create the Wayside Fallen Riders Memorial Park located along Highway 45 near town. Did you know? Two Hills was named the winner of the Most Rider Friendly Community Contest in 2015.
Many great events happening all year long can be found on the Go East of Edmonton website events listing page.
