Framed by the picturesque orange walking bridge on the south and the historical C.N. Rail Bridge on the north, the panoramic view of the South Saskatchewan River is the setting for our beautiful park.
Located right along the riverbank, our 100-acre park has extensive hiking trails, spacious campsites, great access for canoeing/kayaking, lots of birds & wildlife, playgrounds for the kids, and a wonderful golf course. The stunning natural surroundings make this park a popular spot for family reunions, weekend getaways, or extended stays.
Our most recent addition to the park is a concession, for serving cold treats on those hot summer days! You may also sign out our "Kids Adventure Packs", binoculars, Spike-Ball and other games from the concession.
We also regularly have a "story-book trail", outdoor movies and music, and other fun community events in "the Bowl" for everyone to enjoy!
Because our park is within the town of Outlook, we are fortunate to have access to all the local services. There is a medical clinic, hospital, pharmacy, a fire department, and an RCMP detachment right in town.
We are lucky to have many dining options including Canadian and Chinese restaurants, Subway, and coming soon - Dairy Queen!
As for shopping, we have a great selection, ranging from our local hardware stores to boutiques and gift shops, as well as 2 local greenhouses! Check out townofoutlook.ca or outlookchamber.com for lists of local businesses!
