Visit the Past

This history of human settlement in the Parkland area spans 10,000 years, and is a story of people at once taming and succumbing to the landscape around them. The climate has always been harsh, the seasons extreme, but the perseverance that characterized the area’s early settlers was rewarded with good, fertile soil and bountiful harvests in a land full of natural beauty and resources.

Fun Events for Family & Friends

No matter the season, the Parkland is alive with events large and small. From local coffee houses and craft sales, to the excitement of our fairs and signature festivals, we invite you to join us for great events throughout the year.
