About Penhold, Alberta

Penhold is a town in central Alberta, Canada. Penhold is surrounded by the county of Red Deer, 16 km south of Red Deer at the junction of Highway 2A and Highway 42. It is located 128 kilometres north of Calgary, along the Red Deer River. Originally, Penhold was one of the many whistle stops along the Canadian Pacific Railway. It incorporated as the Village of Penhold in 1904. In 1981, the Village of Penhold incorporated as a town as a result of large population growth in the late 1970s. The Town of Penhold’s 2012 municipal census counted a population of 2,476, a 6.6% increase over its 2010 municipal census population of 2,322. The number has to be larger now thanks to new developments like Hawkridge Estates phase 6 and 7.

The town is home to two schools within the Chinook’s Edge school division. Penhold School provides education to students in grades 3 through 9, and Jessie Duncan Elementary School welcomes students from kindergarten through grade 2. In response to the growing population, the town of Penhold will open a new school in 2014 for students in grades 7 through 12. In addition to their two grade schools, the town has a library open five days a week. The Penhold Library also regularly hosts an Adult Book Club, technology help sessions, and kids playgroups.

Staying true to its family-friendly traditions, Penhold offers residents various parks and recreational activities. Some parks include the Splash Park, Tranquility Park, Windsor Park, and the Penhold Athletic Park. The diverse Penhold Multiplex contains an NHL-sized ice rink, multiple meeting rooms, a lounge, the library, as well as a dance studio operated by the Penhold School of Dance. The town is situated in close proximity to the Red Deer River, Sylvan Lake, and Pine Lake: all popular recreation and holiday destinations.
