Peter Nygard Park
The park is named after Peter Nygard international fashion mogul.
In 1952 Peter Nygard moved to Deloraine from Finland with his father, a baker and his mother.
The Nygard Family later moved to Winnipeg where Peter went on to purchase Nygard International and Nygard.com, one of the largest clothing retailers in the world.
In honor of our community who welcomed the Nygard’s family to this prairie province over 50 years ago a park was established by the Nygard Family and dedicated to Deloraine.
A dedication ceremony took place in 2002 where Peter Nygard spoke of his many fond memories of Deloraine and the people who helped his family.
