Magrath is a town of 2,200 people, settled in 1899 by Mormon pioneers who built a large-scale irrigation project to make the dry prairie a more hospitable environment for agriculture. Today, Magrath is a thriving bedroom community of Lethbridge, only 32 km away. Magrath is home to an extensive paved trail system, thriving businesses, a golf course and more. Magrath has completely modernized community schools. The schools house a beautiful public library, black box theatre and indoor playground and weight room, all accessible to the community. Magrath is the kind of place where people know one another and take care of each other. The Diamond Willow Lodge benefits from this atmosphere as community members are quick to volunteer at the lodge and provide help to any residents who need it.
