Thomas Settee Park unveiled to remember First Nations veteran and athlete – Prince Albert Daily Herald

The park on McDonald Avenue in Crescent Heights was the second to receive its new name. It will now be officially called Thomas Settee Park after Thomas Settee, a Prince Albert veteran and athlete of note from Prince Albert.
