HISTORY OF COTILLION PARK, ALBERTA

According to local folklore, Cotillion Park was named after Cotillion Butte, the name given to a round hill located in the area. It was there that the sharp tail grouse did their mating dance. A cotillion is an elaborate dance of the 18th century, that usually has frequent changes of partners. It originated in France.

Alexander Mackenzie, early explorer from Scotland, travelled the Peace River at this area back in 1793 searching for the Pacific Ocean. He was accompanied by two native guides and a number of Canadian Voyageurs. The Cotillion Recreation Area is located at the mouth of Sneddon Creek. The creek was named after a World War 2 RCAF Gunner J.A. Sneddon who was born in Edmonton, Alberta.



Many take their lawn chairs right down to the Mighty Peace River and enjoy the surroundings.

EVENTS at Cotillion Park: Something that is fairly new is the Annual Music in the Park Day that is held in June at Cotillion Park with local musicians performing.
