Camrose in Alberta.
Camrose is a city in central Alberta, Canada amidst some of the richest farmland in the prairies. It is a relatively small city which originally grew up along a railroad and now grows along Highway 13. Camrose is a scenic community with many parks, leading to its moniker "The Rose City". Camrose offers a relaxed lifestyle with a large population of retirees.
Camrose is often called the "Rose City" due to its large amount of parkland containing a large number of wild roses. Also, local rose grower, Jerry Twomey, bred and patented the beautiful Camrose Rose to honour his birth place. This elegant tea rose boasts abundant pink blooms and rich green foliage, making it the most stunning flower in our rose beds. Developed to withstand the drastic Alberta climate, the Camrose Rose was introduced to the city in 1995. It may be seen on display at the Bill Fowler Centre.
Jubilee Park is often used by the community, located in a valley and featuring barbecue shelters, a wandering stream and wide open space.
Mirror Lake sits in the centre of the city. The lake is home to two species of swan; the trumpeter and the Polish mute. The City of Camrose provides a winter shelter to the clipped birds. These swans have called Camrose home for over twenty years. Mirror Lake Park is the focal point of the Camrose urban parks system. Located on the edge of Mirror Lake, it is the home of the Bill Fowler Centre which contains the Chamber of Commerce office and the Tourist Information Centre. The Bill Fowler Centre features a nature mural, carved out of red brick. The mural features many of the animals which are indigenous to the Mirror Lake area.
