The Fort Saskatchewan sheep have returned for 2021! Every year the city of Fort Saskatchewan hosts a herd of sheep throughout city parks to trim the grass. For the city, it’s an eco-friendly way to keep grass trimmed, but for residents and visitors, it’s a fun summer attraction! You can visit the 50 warm, friendly, and fuzzy sheep while they work. Kids and adults alike love this opportunity to get up close and pet the sheep. You can even take a bag of treats (Sheep love carrots and apples) to feed them! Keep your eye out for the sheepdogs herding the flock.
We recommend wearing close-toed shoes for extra precaution. Covid-19 gathering rules must be followed when visiting the sheep, too. Please follow all posted signs and instructions including washing your hands before and after visiting with the sheep. Washrooms are available at the Fort Heritage Precinct.
