In the early 1900's North Glenmore Park was simply utilized as a piece of land, as it was the site of a sandstone quarry that was used to build schools and other buildings throughout the city. Years later when WWII occurred, the dam in the area, which was located on the east side next to the Glenmore Reservoir, was closed and guarded in the event of an attack. Once the land was deemed as safe, it was annexed to the city in 1956.
