Come check out our swimming pool! Our heated outdoor pool has a beach entrance for beginners and a deep end with a diving board for expert swimmers! Plus we now have a non slip floor around the pool and in the change rooms. Lessons will be taught weekday mornings beginning in July and running straight through August. Public swimming is every afternoon and evening, 7 days a week! Current hours can be found on our website.
There is one ball diamond within the park and horseshoe pits. Next to the concession there is a covered sand pit for children to play in. There was a brand new playground installed next to the swimming pool and museum in 2014! Come and try it out.
The park has plenty of places to hike including the Sitting Bull Monument near the Rodeo Ranch Museum. Also there is a short scenic trail to the Wood Mountain Historic Provincial Park.
Displays in the Rodeo Ranch Museum feature the life of the cowboys and ranchers who first came to the area in the 1800’s. Western and rodeo artifacts, an adobe, a turf club building and a pioneer kitchen are reminders of early ranch life. Open 7 days a week, May to September. It has over 1200 historical photos and 2000 artifacts and is an information center for Grasslands National Park.
