Park / Area History

The Nipawin and District Regional Park was established on June 19, 1965 and opened in 1968 with just 25 campsites and a picnic area nestled on 296 acres. Over the years, the park has grown to become one of the best maintained parks in the province, offering top-class amenities and an easily accessible outdoor experience. Nipawin and District Regional Park is located in a rich heritage location. Legend has it that Nipawin takes its name from a Cree word, nepowewin, which means "standing place". This was where the women and children waited for their men to return home from canoe treks. It's also in the heart of 18th century fur trading country. The trading post known as Fort Finlay was built near the present day park site by Francois LeBlanc and James Finlay. 1906 it became farm land for homesteaders.
