Bouchie – Milburn Community Park is the gateway to the Bouchie Lake – Milburn Lake area; it’s located at the junction of Blackwater and Nazko Roads and is accessed off Bonny Road. It is home to the “Bouchie Milburn Community Park” sign, picnic tables, cairn and a kiosk. It’s also known to some as “Pioneer Park.” The land is owned by Ministry of Transportation and is managed by the Bouchie Lake Recreation Commission under CRD Bylaw 4751, 2012.
This site was originally the home-site of one of the pioneers of Bouchie Lake. Under Director Ken Falloon, funding was secured to create a park which serves as the trail head for Claymine Trails (accessed via the Blackwater Rd.).
The BLRC welcomes input from community members to further develop and beautify the park. Discussions for the park have included the removal of invasive plants, the use of indigenous plants, an arboretum, if possible the installation of hydro so the site can be lit and decorated at Christmas, the inclusion of artifacts.
The grounds continue to be maintained by BLRC and over the past 3 years additions to it include: planting of Saskatoon Berry bushes, by Bouchie Lake Elementary student/staff/PAC and a Highway / Events sign funded jointly with Bouchie Lake Community Association.
