Warner is home to a hockey program called the Southern Alberta Xtreme Hockey. The arena has many options for families to come and enjoy some ice time or during “dry floor” season for special events (i.e. home/garden shows, flea markets, farmers markets, etc.) or the bowling alley (featuring glow in the dark lanes) is available to knock down some pins. Warner, also, has a curling rink in town, two restaurants, a hotel, an RV Park (summer usage only), a library and a state of the art athlete center that can be used 24/7, 365 days a year.
