High River Community Overview

High River is a town in southwestern Alberta, Canada with a population of 10,716. (2006). It is 37 kilometres (23 mi) south of the city of Calgary, at the junction of Alberta Highways 2 and 23. Although reasonably distant from Calgary, the town is nonetheless considered to be part of the Calgary Region.

The community gets its name from the Highwood River, which flows through the town, and often floods in the spring.

The town is best known for being the birthplace of former Canadian Prime Minister Joe Clark. Other well-known former citizens include W.O. Mitchell, author of such books as Who Has Seen the Wind and Roses Are Difficult Here, and NHL and WHA player John "Pie" McKenzie.

High River was used as a set for in Superman III, as well as High River, Montana in Nickelodeon's series Caitlin's Way.

As part of High River's tourism and heritage endeavours, a number of murals were painted around town during the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. High River hosted the North America chuckwagon racing championships in 2006.
