A 16-acre site along the Assiniboine River, west of Headingley in the Rural Municipality of Cartier, was once occupied by a summer resort. Established around 1931, by the time it closed in 1953, there were picnic tables, toilets, dressing rooms, eleven cabins, a dance hall, dining hall, and restaurant. The land was subdivided and private residences were built here.
