Park Description

Glenburn is a natural park setting in the Saskatchewan River Valley. We are situated between Maymont and Sonningdale, along the North Saskatchewan River. The park is near the site where the Maymont Ferry operated from 1926 to 1975. Glenburn offers many features including a man made swimming pond (water comes from a natural spring), golfing, ball diamonds, and camping. The park is an excellent spot for many activities such as ball tournaments and family or school reunions. Visitors are sure to find the natural setting of the park an excellent place to relax in a camp spot, golf, hike, swim, or try for a fish in the river.


Local Services

Radisson and North Battleford provide for all your shopping necessities.


Park / Area History

The "Glen" meaning a narrow secluded valley and "Burn" was after Mike Burns the original owner of the land where the park is situated. In June 1963, the RMs of Eagle Creek, Great Bend, Mayfield, Douglas and Glenside along with the towns and villages of Maymont, Richard, Borden, Radisson, and Fielding had joined the Glenburn Regional Park Authority. Soon convenors were appointed for each facility, playground, ball diamonds, and golf course. In the spring of 1964 committees discussed the need for a swimming area and it was decided that a saucer-shaped pool be built with the work being done by Schmidt Construction. Fresh spring water was and is still supplied by damming the creek to the pond. Evergreens were brought from Meeting Lake. In 1965 a change house was built and a building to serve as a concession booth was moved to the park from north of Maymont. Three ball diamonds and a three hole golf course were set up at this time. Ed Broom was the first caretaker-manager of the park and held this position for several years. The Harold Greenslades operated the concession booth for several years. It was a happy day in 1967 when the grand opening was held.
