Regional Partnerships

Leduc County maintains cost-sharing agreements with six municipalities in the Leduc County region. These agreements ensure Leduc County residents have access to quality recreation services, while reducing the recreation costs each municipality is required to pay. Services funded through the cost-share agreements include arenas, pools, athletic fields, recreation programs and libraries. Leduc County is divided into seven recreation districts based on population and school areas, which determines the cost-share amounts.
