Bertram and Florrie Clifford homesteaded in the North Shuswap in 1907 living in a log cabin. Later, a much larger house was built across the road which became known as the Saratoga Lodge. They had three children: Rose, John and Frederick. Sadly, Rose, at the age of 11, drowned in the Shuswap Lake while trying to rescue a drowning friend. Rose Clifford Park is named in her memory.
The park is the recreational heart of Scotch Creek and the North Shuswap. The 4.5 acre park has enough room for a children's playground, baseball diamond and ball field, allcourt (tennis, basketball, ball hockey), swings, picnic area and flush toilet. If you have kids, this park is fun for all ages.
