The platform will feature engaging content, detailed sections on local activities, dining options, accommodations, upcoming events, and a 'Plan Your Trip' feature to ensure a seamless visitor experience.

By bringing together local communities, businesses, residents, and the Chamber, "Discover Wetaskiwin County West" aims to create a one stop shop for the west end of the County, while showcasing each hamlet individually on the platform. This effort will encourage information sharing and community engagement, generating excitement around the unique offerings of Winfield, Buck Lake, and Alder Flats.

"Discover Wetaskiwin County West" captures the spirit of agritourism, showcasing the region's rural charm and heritage.
