A Southern Alberta Pioneer Life Showcase
Sheppard Family Park is Ruth Maccoy's 13.6 acre homestead. On her death in 1995, Ruth gave the land and its buildings to the people of High River Alberta.
Ruth wanted a group, referred to in her will as The Friendship Group, to own and operate the Park for High River Residents. The friendship group declined so High River Rotary took the challenge under the directon of Gordon Barker who formed the Sheppard Family Park Society in 1996 and set about preserving and developing the Park.
The Park celebrates High River history especially the 1800's to 1920's and is located at the corner of 12th Avenue and 5th Street in High River.
