In May 2012, the Jean-Luc Deba Memorial Park was created on the shore of Canyon Creek to honor the sole casualty of the devastating May 2011 wildfires that ravaged the Lesser Slave River region. Deba, 54, died the year prior when his Bell 212 helicopter crashed into the waters of Lesser Slave Lake while trying to drop water on the flames from a bucket attached to his helicopter. Located near a collection of popular local camping and recreational facilities, the park offers a place of enjoyment and quiet reflection. Playground for children nearby at the Canyon Creek Wildfire Legacy Park.
