Greet Our Famous Flock

The Fort Saskatchewan Sheep celebrated 25 years in Fort Saskatchewan in 2017! They will return during the Legacy Park Family Festival on Saturday, June 2nd around 11:30 am. Come see them return for their 26th season!

It started out as turf control, but ended up as a major tourism attraction. If ewe haven't already heard, the City of Fort Saskatchewan uses a flock of sheep (Finnsheep to be exact) to keep the grass trim in City parks. This eco-friendly way of looking after parkland has garnered regional, national, and international acclaim since its inception in 1992.

The sheep are an irresistible delight to Fort Saskatchewan residents and visitors alike. It's quite the sight to see a shepherd or shepherdess in the city, herding the flock of about 50 warm, friendly, and fuzzy sheep between Fort Saskatchewan's parks. Border collies work to help keep the flock together.

You're welcome to come up close and meet the living lawnmowers. The quiet sheep love attention and you can expect the whole flock to surround you! The friendly sheep symbolize the perfect mascot for Fort Saskatchewan - a community known for its friendliness, warmth and hospitality.
