The City of Lacombe and Lacombe County have a rich history of supporting amateur sports and cultural activities in the region. Lacombe is home to the MEGlobal Athletic Park, a new multi-use facility developed for use by athletes and cultural organizations as well as local football, soccer and rugby teams.
The park includes a field house, complete with change rooms with showers, a concession, public washrooms, and a spotting and media tower. The facility also offers two grandstands that can seat 1,500 spectators, a new score clock, and a field and track lighting system. The field has an artificial turf surface, with lines marked for football, two mini soccer pitches, one regulation soccer pitch, and a regulation lacrosse field.
The Lacombe Athletic Park Association (L.A.P.A.) is a non-profit organization that manages the park on behalf of the City of Lacombe. The L.A.P.A. handles marketing, bookings, and operations at the park, including all related expenses and the funding of a capital reserve. It has a mandate to provide local groups with subsidized rates to use the facility, and to promote the park as a multi-use facility for local, regional and provincial sporting and cultural events.
