Muskoseepi ParkGrande Prairie
The Muskoseepi Park Pavilion was built in 1986, and the beautiful green space around it has been maintained in Grande Prairie since then. “Muskoseepi” is a name from the Cree language that means “Bear Creek,” which is the waterway that runs through the park. Major events are held at Muskoseepi Park year round, and there are numerous amenities available for visitors.
The Pavilion offers an indoor space for events during the colder months of the year, and houses interpretive programs for visitors as well. Outside the Pavilion is a pond that’s stocked for children’s fishing during the summer months. The pond is converted into an outdoor community skating rink during the winter. The Pavilion provides direct access to the trail system within Grande Prairie, where visitors can go hiking or biking. The well-maintained trails follow the entire length of Bear Creek through the city.
Muskoseepi Park covers more than 1,100 acres in Bear Creek Valley. The Bear Creek Swimming Pool and the Grande Prairie Museum are housed on the park grounds, in addition to a skateboard park. Space is set aside for lawn bowling, horseshoes and other outdoor games. There’s a playground and climbing wall near the Pavilion to keep the kids active.
Other amenities and offerings at Muskoseepi Park include the Amphitheatre, which is an outdoor concert space. Miniature golf and a driving range are available as well. Picnic areas and ball diamonds can also be found. Showshoe rentals, cross country skiing and sledding are popular winter activities at the park.
