Park Description

The park is in a natural treed setting amid rolling hills in the heart of ranch country. On those hot days you can go for a dip in our outdoor swimming pool which now has a non slip floor surrounding it! It also has a beach entrance at one end and it gradually gets deeper with a diving board. The water is guarded by experienced lifeguards and lessons are taught weekday mornings. The public can swim in the afternoons and evenings all week. Season passes and daily rates are available. The park is a good site for family reunions, with spacious campsites and family activities available. The park has a hall and a Summer Kitchen available for rent for family gatherings. A booth with confectionery goods and meals is also available for those that need a break from cooking. There are also bathroom, shower and laundry facilities.

Park / Area History

Wood Mountain’s first European settlers came in the 1870’s. Boundary Commission survey teams came shortly after. They built cabins that in 1874 became the first North West Mounted Police post. Sitting Bull took refuge here after the Battle of Little Big Horn in 1876.
