* Please BYOP * You are looking for a small bison tube.

Zenon Park owes its existence to Phillipe-Antoine Bérubé, a colonizing priest from the United States who brought several French-speaking families across the border to embark on a journey into western Canada.

The early settlers began arriving  in the area in 1910. In 1913, there were enough pioneers to get their own post office.

The name Zenon Park comes from one of the first residents of the colony: Zenon Chamberland. He had made  a park in the village and it became a very popular spot, especially after Sunday mass. The  post office of the day was also built there.

Today, Zenon Park is a vibrant Saskatchewan community. Many Fransaskois families still live there.

Zenon Park doit son existence à Phillipe-Antoine Bérubé, un prêtre colonisateur des États-Unis qui entraîna plusieurs familles francophones de l’autre côté de la frontière afin de se lancer à l’aventure dans l’ouest canadien.

Les premiers colons s’installèrent dans la région à partir de 1910. En 1913, il y a assez de pionniers afin que ceux-ci obtiennent leur propre bureau de poste.

Le nom Zenon Park vient d’un des premiers résidants de la colonie ; Zénon Chamberland. Celui-ci avait aménagé un parc dans le village qui était très fréquenté, surtout après la messe du dimanche. C’est aussi là que le bureau de poste fut aménagé à l’époque.

Aujourd’hui, Zenon Park est une communauté vibrante de la Saskatchewan. Plusieurs familles fransaskoises y vivent toujours.
