In the early 20th century, Polish and Ukrainian people came to Canada to find freedom and prosperity. With the best farmland in the Red River Valley already taken, the new immigrants settled on marginal land. By the 1930s a strong Polish and Ukrainian community had established themselves in what became known as Pine Ridge. The Kudlowich Homestead is the last remaining home in the park. Still standing today is the house and barn, of log construction with dovetail joinery, typical of the Depression-era construction. The Pine Ridge community existed up until 1964, when the park was designated.
