Park / Area History
Lake Diefenbaker was formed when the South Saskatchewan River was dammed. This created a natural bay that attracted local boating enthusiasts. They became a Regional Park in 1976 and with the help of local volunteers, this beautiful park was created and maintained. The park is located near the Great Sandhills. The Cabri Museum also houses artifacts illustrating the history of the area.
