Rivers Provincial Park

Parks/Nature Details

Made up of 38 hectares of mixed grass prairie, this park is situated by Lake Wahtopanah. The lake, a reservoir that was created by damming the Little Saskatchewan River, was named after a native word watopapinah meaning “canoe people”. The community of Rivers was named after Sir Charles River Wilson, Chairman of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Board of Directors.

The park is home to a popular beach and provides ample fishing for pike, walleye and perch.
