As one of the largest urban parks in North America, Fish Creek Provincial Park has a long and fascinating history that includes First Nations groups, North West Mounted Police, homesteading and ranching. Take a stroll back in time to discover the fun facts about buffalo runs, the dance hall days of the area – long before the city joined the landscape – and about the creation of this beautiful urban park.
