Park / Area History

In the 1950s, John From, a professional landscaper and local land owner built a small summer park to provide some recreation facilities for residents of this area. Two man made lakes, golf course and a few campsites were built. In 1972, poor health caused Mr. From to offer the park for sale to the Regional Park Authority. The park is located along what was the most important overland route through nineteenth-century Saskatchewan; Carlton Trail Regional Park is rich in history. The Carlton Cart Trail linked Fort Garry with Edmonton House during the fur trade era and is nearby, as is the Wolverine Historical Society, which contains artifacts from the surrounding area.

Golf clubhouse and washroom facilities are barrier free.

Camping

In two campground areas of the park there are 75 electrical sites and 10 non-electrical overflow sites. Each site has potable water, fire pits, and picnic tables. The sites are cut out of mature parkland forest, so aspen willows and wild fruit trees dominate the campgrounds, hundreds of spruce trees have been planted in the past 20 years. Sites are large with a gravelled pad, 30 amp service to accommodate the modern day camper. Carlton Trail is currently in the process of adding 22 more 30 amp electrical sites. There are washrooms throughout the campground as well as a shower facility located at the main building. The main building also includes a restaurant as well as a licensed area.

Golf

The course lies on rolling terrain, features approximately a 100 feet elevation difference over its nine holes. As such, the golfer can expect many less than perfect lies as he/she plays up, down or from side hills. New PGA style greens were built in 2002. White tees are 3055 yards and a par rating of 36, Red tees are 2935 yards with a par of 37.
