History & Vision
Woodlawn Regional Park is proud to be a Non-Profit organization serving Estevan and area since 1962. We have a long standing tradition of providing and maintaining some of the areas most beautiful recreation sites. It is always a pleasure to hear of the many memories residents past and present have to share of their time at Woodlawn.
In 2011 those memories were almost wiped away with the worst flooding in the past 100 years. In some places the river silt was 8 feet high, in others the river had widened by 50 feet. It was devastating, especially to those who had given so much of their time to the park.
Fortunately, Woodlawn calls home one of the most supportive and generous communities in all of Canada. Thanks to the hard work of staff, the Board of Directors, community minded businesses and volunteers Woodlawn has been transformed. When a group gets together and views tragedy as an opportunity there really is no limit to what you can achieve. Woodlawn is a testament to that belief.
Moving forward with the momentum that has been created, the Board of Directors and management have a vision to enhance the park into not only a recreation destination, but a leader in sustainability and environmental awareness for the region. As always Woodlawn will continue to expand and give back to the community in every way possible. We are always looking for new partnerships, suggestions and new ideas as it is the synergy of many that create lasting positive change!
