Fun for the whole family!!!

Mini Links also has the best ice cream place in Grande Prairie in the summer - excellent shakes, sundaes, and they are always stocked on blue bubblegum ice cream!

Apparently, as seen in the pic, they also rent bikes here.

A fun, kid friendly golf course

Bear Creek Golf and Country Club

18 holes, pro shop, clubhouse/lounge, and cart, club rentals.

$13/9 holes, $21/18 holes weekdays; $15/9 holes, $24/18 holes weekends/holidays. In the fall, unlimited usage after 6 p.m. for $12

This is a great, kid friendly golf course. No dress code, slower pace, and smaller than the classy courses. This is the place to go when you want to laugh and drink beer!

Directions: Located west of the city on 132 Avenue (turn at GP Honda)
