Some say playing is the first form of learning. If that's the case, then there's plenty of opportunity to get smarter.

There's good reason that Kimberley's been designated a resort municipality.

A significant part of Kimberley's desirable qualities are attributable to the lifestyle it affords. The pace of life combined with the infrastructure and area make this a mountain playground. There are different activities for every time of year, and something for nearly every type of individual. There are team sports and individual pursuits. There are plenty of high intensity pastimes, like downhill skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing and whitewater rafting. But there are even more opportunity for casual pursuits, like fishing, strolling the community's many trails, or golfing one of the community's courses.

Though many activities can be largely categorized as either winter or summer, Kimberley is decidedly a year-round playground.
