SERVICES

Battle River Crime Watch

Edberg is a Battle River Crime Watch community member: About Battle River Rural Crime Watch Society Battle River Rural Crime Watch Society is a non-profit association which has been formed to assist the Camrose and Bashaw RCMP detachments and Camrose County Protective Services in preventing and fighting crime. B.R.R.C.W.S. is operated under the direction of a local board of directors. The goal of the combined effort is to educate and train rural families and individuals in being vigilant in reporting suspicious behavior in an effort to reduce criminal activity. We invite your participation by being the eyes and ears of Rural Alberta. Often a small string of clues is the solution to solving minor or major crimes. Dishonesty comes in many forms: Identity fraud, telephone and credit card scams, property crimes, theft - the list is long. Be alert for suspicious behaviour or activity in your area that doesn't look right or feel right. Don't take matters into your own hands. Call the numbers below to report your concern. Your report may well be the difference in preventing crime or solving a case. Law enforcement personnel in the Battle River area makes regular updates to their website at www.brrcws.com.

Tourism, Recreation, & Parks

The Village is home to a beautiful, self-contained downtown park that has developed gradually over the years. Originally it was a small area funded by a grant from the Devonian Foundation. A major contribution from the Municipal Recreation Tourism Program, along with assistance from the Recreation, Parks & Wildlife Foundation, County of Camrose, Edberg Recreation Association, Village of Edberg and private donations has allowed it to boast of the many features it holds today.

It has developed into a much larger area, now encompassing the former C.N.R. station grounds and the old hardware store site. The park is an ideal place for family reunions, picnics, and other outdoor activities. The Cookhouse is available to rent for $25. To reserve the Cookhouse please contact the Village office.

The Village also contains a number of recreational facilities and area residents have the opportunity to enjoy them all.

The close proximity of the Battle River Valley and Dried Meat Lake allows for more recreational fun, including snowmobiling, tobogganing, horseback riding, cross country skiing, boating and swimming.

West Dried Meat Lake Landfill

The landfill is open to the public Monday through Saturday from 8:45 am to 3:15 pm. For more information call 780-877-2269 or visit their website at http://www.county.camrose.ab.ca/content/wdml-landfill-disposal-rates
