Village of Champion

Javascript is required to view this map.

Champion offers a warm, friendly small-town atmosphere you just can’t beat. A peaceful, thiving community, located south of Vulcan on Highway 23, Champion offers great recreational opportunities due to its close proximity to Little Bow Provincial Park and Twin Valley Reservior (approximately 17km from each).

Champion has fully serviced residential lots for sale and also has land available for light industrial use. If you are looking for a site that has easy access to highway or rail transportation and is midway point between the cities of Calgary and Lethbridge, the village of Champion is for you.
