A gentleman by the name of Ray Smith purchases six acres of land on the Oxtongue Lake around 1948. On this site, he built cottages facing the lake and a main building to serve as living quarters, office and a small grocery store which faced the main road (Hwy #60). Thus, Parkway was created. Sometime in the very early '50s he sold to Mr. Stevenson, who later took on Mr. Kendall as a partner. They ran the business as partners for a few years. mr. Kendall bought Parkway outright and proceeded to run it solely until May 1962, at which time he sold to Glen & Laura Warboys.

When the Warboys took over Parkway, there were 13 cottages, campgrounds, small gift shop and grocery store with a take-out window for fast food. Parkway was again sold in March 1990 to the Ellis family, and in 2000 vern and Betty continue to operate and upgrade Parkway Cottages.
