This small park, in the Souris River valley, in the Municipality of Grassland, commemorates pioneer Liskum Campbell (1870-1956) who resided in the Riverside district from 1890 to 1947. A charter member of Court Arnold No. 874 of the Canadian Order of Foresters, he built a cable ferry, store, gas pumps, and dance hall known as Riverside Park.
The park is a municipally-designated heritage site (1991).
