Cochrane Southern Alberta

Nestled in the Bow River Valley, just 20 minutes west of Calgary, you’ll find a quaint country town bursting with western charm and recreational opportunities. Stroll historic Main Street to explore Cochrane’s many shops, boutiques and eateries, including its famous ice cream parlour MacKay’s. Hike the trails at Cochrane Ranche Historic Site for a glimpse of the town’s life-size cowboy on horseback statue and to take in sweeping views of the Canadian Rockies. Bike along the Bow River and stop for a picnic by the pond at Mitford Park.
