Park / Area History

As early as 1917, the park was a site known by the First Nations as the Meeting Place. During the Riel Rebellion, it is believed that it was the place of a brief encounter between the Northwest Mounted Police and the Metis. From 1916 on, it was the centre of the local agricultural community, as well as, the site of many local fairs and gatherings. From 1950 on, the Rabbit Lake Legion administrated the area for public recreation. In 1965, Meeting Lake Regional Park was established to provide recreational facilities for the area. The distinctive Round Hall and the other 8 sided building have been a fixture in the area since the inception of the park and a symbol of the pioneer spirit.


Barrier Free Access

We are wheelchair accessible in main washrooms, laundry facilities, Round Hall and concession.

The beach features benches, picnic tables and a beach volleyball area. The protected swimming area includes two swimming platforms. Adjacent to the beach is a bathroom and shower facility and a well developed playground.  Swimming lessons are available during the first 2 weeks in July.
