Looking to spend time as a family? The Brooks and County of Newell Early Childhood Development Coalition invites you to give fishing a try! Fishing is something your entire family can do – from toddlers to grandparents, for a few casts or the whole day.

There is free transportation from Brooks City Hall to the pond. Bus departs at 10 am and returns at 1 pm. To book your seats on the bus, contact Desirae Veno, EDC at 403-376-2053, or click on the link below.


  • Bring your own fishing rod.
  • Fishing rods available to borrow.
  • Fishing mentors on hand to help new anglers.
  • Information available on fishing and conservation.
  • Light lunch and refreshments, while supplies last.
  • Giveaways for young anglers, while supplies last.

This event is on one of Alberta's Family Fishing Weekends when anyone can give fishing a try without having to buy a licence. Alberta Sportfishing Regulations still apply. Visit for more information.
