Park / Area History
The park was established in 1922 with the old swimming pool(closed) being built as the second swimming pool(closed) in Saskatchewan. The area had been a recreational site since World War I. The natural terrain of the park along the east bank of the South Saskatchewan River includes some of the oldest stands of elm trees, confirmed by the Canadian Forestry Service to be over 150 years old. The 100 acre site became a regional park in 1961. Campsites and a large picnic area are situated around the elm trees. In 1971 a nine-hole golf course was constructed along the scenic east bank of the South Saskatchewan River. In 1984, 26 new electrical campsites were added with a washroom/shower facility.
In 2000, 13 new 30 amp & water campsites, group camping and a washroom/shower facility were added to the park. In 2009, 19 new 30 amp & water campsites were created. In 2011 there were 13 new 30 amp & water campsites added to the park. In 2017, after closing the swimming pool, the change rooms were renovated and provided the North end of the park with a new washroom/shower facility.
