The County of Grande Prairie has teamed up with Alberta Conservation Association to host a province-wide program, Kids Can Catch Event at the County Sportsplex Pond located at 7407-108 Street Clairmont (on the east side of the Crosslink County Sportsplex parking lot behind the playground.) This event is free to attend and create a non-competitive family fishing atmosphere to hook new and young anglers on fishing. It is a chance to fish and learn about fish conservation and responsible angling.
