Wide open places to run play and explore.

William Pearce Park

William Pearce Park, is a unique neighbourhood park featuring a small playground, a stocked pond and fishing deck. The park has a relaxed setting and combines the use of mature trees with open space that connects to the regional paved pathway and coulee trails. It incorporates many natural elements, including a canal that is integrated into the ornamental pond and waterfall.

The park celebrates William Pearce, who in 1876, along with Dominion Land Surveyors, commenced laying out the grid system that included townships, ranges, sections and road allowances. In 1904 he joined the Canadian Pacific Railway as an official advisor on irrigation projects. He is known as the “Father of Irrigation” for his work in developing the layout for irrigation in the prairies.
