The Town of Russell, home to about 1700 people is situated at the convergence of three major highways and is regional service centre. The centre provides a growing commercial and retail business sector and a high quality education system from pre-school to post secondary education. This community is home to a quality regional medical centre with four doctors, an emergency medical centre, a cancer care facility and a chemo-dialysis treatment unit. A variety of recreational facilities such as the multiplex on Main Street a beautiful community centre, a curling rink and a 9 hole golf course just 5 minutes east of town provide young and mature with a generous mix of recreational opportunity. A large spacious Inn provides travelers with a relaxing end of the day experience. A short 20 minute drive to the north opens a door to another menu of recreation including fishing, boating, hiking, golfing, waterskiing, and yes, the best winter ski park east of the Rockies.
This community is focused on quality of life issues for our citizens and for those looking for a community in which to raise a family in a safe, healthy and active environment. Our residential areas are safe, clean and provide generous green space for play and relaxation. Our main street has been reconstructed so as to provide local citizens and visitors with a quality experience while visiting the “down town” area.
