Construction and trades contractors are plenty in the town site with many others commuting the short distance to Winnipeg along the scenic St. Mary’s Road – PR 200 or the easily accessible PTH 75.

PLAY

This community is brimming with options for play and fitness. After a long day’s work, there’s no need to head back to the city for recreation or sport. St. Adolphe has been built to make full use of its amazing surroundings, whether fishing, tobogganing, down the steep banks of the town’s protective dike, or bird watching along the river’s edge.

The indoor arena offers recreational and competitive hockey and ringette for all ages, public staking and the curling rink is bustling with a strong young curlers program. Cross country ski trails run through the community and snowshoe rentals are available at the town pharmacy. If you love snowmobiling, St. Adolphe is a Mecca for on and off trail fun, accessible right outside your back door.

The annual winter carnival is a great way to meet your neighbours and make lifelong friends. In summer you can hike or cycle the Crow Wing Trail, visit the Chimney Swift nesting grounds, or plant some fresh greens in the community gardens. Get the kids involved in baseball or soccer or visit the local murals.

Year-round activities include gymnastics, karate, kickboxing, badminton, and Pickleball. Brownies, Guides, and Sparks have an active chapter here. There is also the community library to keep the family reading. Parc Pointe Coupee Park provides a multi-sport court in summer and a skating rink in winter. Like many small communities, residents of St. Adolphe are big on heart. Fall suppers and old-time dances at the local hall draw crowds from the region and demonstrate the best this tight knit community has to offer.
