Framed by a picturesque walking bridge on the south, and the historical train bridge on the north, the panoramic view of the South Saskatchewan River is the setting for our beautiful park.
Our 100-acre park has extensive hiking trails, spacious campsites, canoe & kayak river access, playgrounds, concession, and an amazing 9-hole, grass green golf course!
We also regularly host community events such as outdoor markets, story-book trails, canoe trips, as well as outdoor movies and music for everyone to enjoy!
Our park is within the town of Outlook, so we are fortunate to have access to all the local services including a medical clinic, hospital, pharmacy, fire department, and an RCMP detachment.
As for shopping, Outlook offers a great selection, ranging from grocery, liquor & hardware stores to boutiques and gift shops, as well as 2 local greenhouses! We also have lots of tasty options for dining or take-out... for those days cooking just isn't in the cards!

Park / Area History
The area has been a recreational site since World War I, and became a designated park in 1922. The natural terrain 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 site became a Regional Park in 1961. In 1971 a nine-hole golf course was constructed along the scenic east bank of the South Saskatchewan River. In 1984, 26 electrical campsites were added with a washroom/shower facility.
From 2000 through 2022 there have been many upgrades to the campground, including 30 amp power service, group camping sites, and updated washroom and shower house facilities.
