THE REGIONAL PARK
Agreements between the Town of Ituna, Village of Hubbard, RM of Bon Accord and RM of Tullymet were made in 1968 to join the Saskatchewan Regional Park Association and establish a park in Ituna, Saskatchewan. The budget at that time was $35,000 to build the park. The parties involved created a joint act to work together to elect a regional park authority and create a regional park on SE 16 25 11 W2.
The original board members were:
Town of Ituna - Roy Smysniuk, John Wendz, Matt Stecyk, Harry Muzyka, Frank Datchko
Village of Hubbard - Joseph Korchinski
RM Tullymet - Bronie Antonishyn
RM Bon Accord - Mike Peesker, John Kruzeniski
It is because of a vision of a few many years ago we have a beautiful park for all to enjoy!

As with all Regional Parks in Saskatchewan, the money raised during the operating season, from May to August, through support from local people and businesses,donations and grants allows the park to continue operating. Volunteers contribute their time and energy to keep the park running smoothly, organizing events and working at those events .
The Ituna & District Regional Park is a non-profit organization, governed by Board of Directors, comprised of members from the Town of Ituna and local Rural Municipalities of Bon Accord and Tullymet. The Park Board of Directors creates all policies, approves all budgets, and makes all major decisions for the Park.
