 City of Fort Saskatchewan COVID-19 Update

 

The sheep of Fort Saskatchewan have been delighting visitors and keeping the grass trim in City parks for 26 years. If ewe haven’t already heard, Fort Saskatchewan uses the flock as an eco-friendly way of looking after the parks.

The sheep are a delight to residents and visitors. It’s quite the sight to see a shepherd and sheepdogs in the city, herding the flock of 50 warm, friendly, and fuzzy sheep.

Every year, the sheep arrive to the Fort Heritage Precinct during the Legacy Park Family Festival and leave during the first week of September. For the most recent up-to-date information, please visit the City of Fort Saskatchewan’s webpage.

You’re welcome to come up close and meet the living lawnmowers. The quiet sheep love attention and you can expect the whole flock to surround you!

Check out our Sheep Visiting Guidelines for tips on how to make your visit enjoyable for our sheep too!
