Zenon Park is a village in eastern Saskatchewan, Canada. The population was 231 with 108 dwellings according to the 2001 Statistics Canada census. Zenon Park is bilingual, using English and French.

History[edit]

In 1910 French-American settlers arrived and later came immigrants from Quebec and Northern United States. In 1913 Zenon Park was named officially, after Zenon Chamberland, the postmaster. The economy then depended on agriculture and lumber. Alfalfa has also been a successful industry and has greatly helped the economy.

The community has one designated heritage property, the Paroisse Notre Dame de la Nativité (Our Lady of the Nativity Roman Catholic Church) (previously called the Eglise Notre Dame de la Nativité) was constructed in between 1930 - 1931 by Filion & Sons Co.[5]

Zenon Park is on the Thunder Rail short-line railway.[6]
