Lions Grove Park is located at the south end of Nanton, off Highway 2 Southbound. Boomers Hill is within the park and is ideal for bird watching in the summer and tobogganing in the winter. There is a camp kitchen (first come, first serve basis) available for picnic use and the second phase of the Millennial Pathway System winds itself through the area.
Every year Nanton has an exciting fireworks production during Nanton Round-Up Days, held on August long weekend. This event is a must-see for the whole family.
