Things To Do

The Battlefords Park hugs the shores of Jackfish Lake, a shallow wfater body that sits amid gently rolling plains created 10,000 years ago by retreating glaciers.  You can enjoy a little sun-and-splash on the beach or assemble the gang for some fun at the horseshoe pitch, beach volleyball courts or the miniature golf facility.

Swimming

The park offers a large beach area for swimming.  The main beach area also offers a large cultured grass area for recreational activities.
