Check out the Town's xeriscaping (landscaping for water conservation) demonstration sites at the Okotoks Recreation Centre, Recycling Centre, Northridge Drive medians, Rotary Performing Arts Centre, and Seaman Stadium. These are non-irrigated demonstration sites that incorporate the various principles of xeriscaping to achieve beautiful low maintenance landscapes. Other xeriscaped sites include the heritage garden at the Okotoks Museum and Archives Heritage House, the Healthy Okotoks Coalition community garden and Voluntree Grove at Kinsmen Park.
