As for the rest of the Town and Valley:

Boats on Echo Lake
Boats on Echo Lake at Echo Valley Provincial Park

Summer in the Valley affords many recreation opportunities—swimming, boating and fishing on our four lakes: Pasqua, Echo, Mission and Katepwa with public boat launches on all four lakes and public beaches at Echo Valley Provincial Park, B-Say-Tah Point, Fort Campground and at Katepwa Beach. Then there is hiking (mid-July to the end of September to avoid the tick-season) with two trails at Echo Valley Provincial Park and Katepwa Beach, the Trans-Canada Tansi Trail which goes right through the whole area as well as a short but very nice marsh trail starting just west of the Museum. Bicycling is popular throughout the area and there is even a Skateboard Park at the East end of Fort Qu’Appelle tucked in behind the Robins Donuts. If the kids want a Splash Park, the Balcarres Lions built one in Balcarres, just 15 minutes northeast on Highway 10.

Bicycling in tghe valley
Bicycling around our scenic lakes is a popular passtime every summer.

For those of you interested in the history of the area, the Fort Qu’Appelle & District Museum has many well thought out displays and is located at the north end of Bay Avenue just before you reach the Qu’Appelle River and Flood control structure at the mouth of Echo Lake. There are also several Treaty 4 and other historical sites to visit in and around Fort Qu’Appelle, as well the Motherwell National Historic Site near Abernathy, northeast of Fort Qu’Appelle.
if you’re hungry, we have many excellent restaurants to choose from open all year round right here in the Fort as well as at Lebret and Katepwa Beach in the valley and in most small communities surrounding the valley.
Don’t Forget Winter:
 Winter in the Valley affords many more recreation opportunities–ice-fishing, snow-mobiling, skiing downhill or cross-country, ice-skating, snowshoeing, and more. Or, just go for a walk in the crisp, clean winter landscape the valley affords, and breathe in the refreshingly cold country air.
BraeBurn  Inn, and Fort Qu’Appelle in the beautiful Qu’Appelle Valley, are the the place to be for recreation in Saskatchewan.
