The site of the heart of the park, the Centennial Park area, has been a gathering place for the region from before pioneer days. The First Nations People often gathered at "Moccasin Flats" on Bear Creek. As Grande Prairie's settlement grew, a small town developed on and around the site. In 1967 Centennial Park was created to commemorate Canada's 100th birthday. It quickly became a focal point for community activities and events. From the enthusiastic efforts of early citizens through to the contributions of many committee groups, the Urban Park Program was one more step to ensuring Grande Prairie residents have easy access to significant areas of open space and developed leisure and recreation opportunities. The concept for Muskoseepi Park was created in 1980 when the Provincial Government of Alberta announced that funding for the development of urban parks in Grande Prairie and several other communities was available through the Heritage Trust Fund. A steering committee was formed and the citizens of Grande Prairie were given opportunities for planning input. Muskoseepi Park was officially opened on July 6, 1986. Since then we have continued to improve our facilities. The tennis courts have been resurfaced and the outdoor pool upgraded. In 1999 we replaced playground equipment and added a climbing wall. In 1999 we also opened our skateboard park, which as been a tremendously popular addition to the park.
