Park / Area History

This park's origin dates to 1949, when a local man incorporated the Eston Riverside Pool and Playground, Ltd., and sold shares locally for $100.00 each. From the $8,000.00 he raised, a pool was built and opened that year. By 1965, it became apparent that the park required a great deal of upgrading if it was to remain viable. The original stock company was dissolved in 1967 and Eston Riverside became a regional park, sponsored by the town of Eston and the RMs of Snipe Lake and Newcombe. Over the years, the success of the park has been attributed to the many local volunteers whose diligence literally made the park. Nearby on Highway 30 is a marker commemorating the Old Cart Trail from Saskatchewan Landing to Red Deer Forks, worn deep by nineteenth century traders. Visitors will also enjoy the Prairie West Historical Centre, a renovated pioneer home, circa 1916-19, that includes period rooms and several exhibition areas that are changed each year, along with an art gallery in the basement.
