Description

Henderson Lake Park is a 47 hectare (117 acre) blend of relaxed leisure 
and active recreation opportunities concentrated around a 60 acre 
man-made lake. Paved and shale walking trails border Henderson 
Lake, along with playgrounds, rest areas and picnic sites. 
Concession is open during the summer months.  
 
Henderson Park has been a focus of civic pride for more than 85 
years. Originally developed for the 7th International Dry-Farming 
Congress in 1912, it continues to be an attraction for special event 
celebrations. The lake itself was originally a large slough. William 
Henderson, the Mayor of Lethbridge during the early preparations 
for the Farming Congress, was instrumental in initiating the 
concept of Henderson Lake and a surrounding park.  
 It is home to  the annual Dragon Boat Festival in july as well as Canada Day celebrations.
