Vulcan County is conveniently located close to Calgary and Lethbridge in Alberta's southwest. The County landscape provides a variety of visual experiences as one travels from one end to the other... flatland to rolling hills, Lake McGregor, a 22-mile long man-made reservoir, to historic attractions and prairie bunchgrass, to refreshing valleys of mature trees and lush green grass.
Key Community Features
Throughout the County, communities have a wide range of recreational facilities, including playgrounds, community centres, senior citizens drop-in centres, golf courses, ice arenas, swimming pools, and rodeo arenas. County historical attractions that focus on the First Nations heritage are the Carmangay Tipi Rings and the Majorville Medicine Wheel; while the aviation related attractions include the Royal Canadian Air Force Monument at the Vulcan Industrial Airport.
The Federal Government actually called the original air training base Kirkcaldy, but after pressure from the Town of Vulcan, it was changed to Vulcan. After World War II, the County purchased the property from Crown Assets Corporation and had the property subdivided.
