The Town of Daysland is located 32 km southeast of Camrose on Highway 13. Home to over 800 residents, it serves as the education, medical, and shopping center for a large mixed farming district. The town's quiet streets are lined with stately trees and there are many parks and natural areas to enjoy.

Daysland was named after Edgerton W. Day, who purchased the land for the community from the Canadian Pacific Railroad in 1904 — he became the town's first mayor in 1905. Over 100 community volunteers organize a variety of cultural events throughout the year.

ATTRACTIONS & EVENTS

Come to town for a movie, a night of musical entertainment, or to watch a ball or hockey game. Daysland's cultural life is one of the major attractions for residents and visitors. Our facilities include the Palace Theatre, the Senior Drop-In Centre, the Community Hall, Daysland School, and the Public Library.
The historic Palace Theatre, built in 1952 and located on Main Street, was recently resurrected by a dedicated group of volunteers; it now hosts movies and monthly entertainment including live theatre, cinema, musicals and visual art events. Visit DaysArts.ca for the DaysArts Concert series and the movie schedule.

Daysland is a very family friendly community — there is a K-12 school, and sports teams including hockey and baseball. There is an active hospital featuring surgery options, as well as a medical clinic that serves not only Daysland but patients from as far away as St. Albert. Providence Place is a state-of-the-art seniors aging in place facility.

For Canada's 150th anniversary this year, the community will host several special events. In the spring, drive by our display of tulips. For Canada Day, celebrations will include family activities, food, and a car show.

The trail has been open since 1993 thanks to the generous donations and support of the community and volunteers.

The course also has a licensed clubhouse, restaurant, and campsites with hook-ups available.
