The Western Financial Place arena has 4,264 seats for watching the Kootenay Ice WHL Major Junior ice hockey team. If golf or casino gaming are your passion, tee off and roll the dice at the St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino, in Cranbrook. Is that too much action for you?

Aquariums, a turtle pond, and plenty of picnic areas promise a great family outing.

Looking for food? Explore the lanes of the Cranbrook Farmer’s Market, chock full of fresh farmer grown produce and handcrafted wares. Sample local cider and wine, or cut into a custom-made savoury crepe. It is a fabulous outdoor venue for enjoying the fresh air as you sip cappuccino with friends.
