The Alvey Baker Morden Park extends along the banks of the Dead Horse Creek offering a natural setting for recreation, picnic areas, cycling and scenic walks in the heart of the city. The park’s main entrance is situated on Hwy. #3 and 13th Street.

There is a children’s’ spray park, bike pump track, and playground for summertime enjoyment. In winter enjoy a brisk walk along the trails. Public washrooms and sheltered picnic areas make it a popular place to gather with family and friends. A cairn at the south entrance to the park explains the origins of a fur trade post (Pinancewaywinning Post) in this area as well as the history surrounding Alexander Henry the Younger, a fur trader. The Back 40 Folk Festival, Corn & Apple Show and Shine and other activities and events are held here each year.
