Named in honour of the coronation of King George V in 1911, the town of Coronation promotes a “royal” theme with its street names. We have a wealth of recreational facilities for the enjoyment of our residents and visitors alike, including Campgrounds, a Hockey Arena, Curling Rink, Bowling Alley, Tennis Courts, Golf Course, Ball Diamonds, Outdoor Swimming Pool, and of course the Coronation Rodeo Grounds.
