About this activity

Wood Mountain Post's proximity to the United States border determined its role in policing the northwest. The North-West Mounted Police (NWMP) detachment patrolled the border from 1874 to 1918, regulating whiskey traders, horse thieves and cattle rustlers.

The Post tells the story of Major James Walsh of the NWMP, and how he negotiated with Sioux Chief Sitting Bull who brought 5,000 followers into Saskatchewan after the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876. Interpretive staff guide you through two reconstructed building furnished with displays.

The two buildings tell the story of Major James Walksh of the NWMP and his negotiations with Chief Sitting Bull. The staff are on ahdn from June to September to answer any questions you may have and will guide you around the park. There's also school programs available too if you fancied a day out with the class and lots of special events that run whilst the park is open during the months of June to August. 

You'll find picnic facilities on site, with campaing available at the nearby Wood Regional Park if you wanted to extend your stay. The estimated viewing time is one hour, with the rest of your visit spent relaxing!
