An attractive community of Danish origins, Standard is surrounded by fertile farmland. The Chimney Hills can be seen rising in the background.
Standard is a clean, progressive and affordable community located in the heart of the County of Wheatland.
Standard boasts a reliable clean source of water which comes from Calgary. This initiative was achieved through a joint community project, the Wheatland Regional Water Program.
Wheatland Crossing is a Kindergarten to Grade 12 school just five minutes, by bus, south of Standard.
The Village has a new housing subdivision on the west side which overlooks gently sloping fields and pastures to the south.
Standard has easy access to larger centers with Strathmore being 37km (25 minutes) away, Drumheller is 58km (45 min.), and Calgary east is 80km (60 min.). Residents can enjoy a quiet country life with access to the big city! Other communities close by are: Hussar, Gleichen and Rockyford.
Our Village is an enthusiastic sports community for both summer and winter sports. We have an indoor skating arena with ice from October to March, with a new outdoor ice surface. There is also a Curling Club, with a new viewing lounge. Outdoor tennis courts are lit up in the evenings, with a volley ball court adjacent. There are numerous ball diamonds in the Village, a running track, as well as children’s playgrounds.
