Know More About Saskatoon:

Canada's fastest-growing city, Saskatoon, is often referred to as the "Paris of the Prairies" for its beautiful brass-colored bridges. And it's catching up to the French capital with its rich historical and cultural offerings. With Saskatonians returning home from big cities, this Saskatchewan city has recently grown in population and popularity without sacrificing its charm.

Saskatoon is home to the University of Saskatchewan, the Meewasin Valley Authority (which protects the South Saskatchewan River and provides for the city's popular riverbank park spaces), and Wanuskewin Heritage Park (a National Historic Site of Canada and UNESCO World Heritage applicant representing 6,000 years of First Nations history).

The Rural Municipality of Corman Park No. 344, the most populous rural municipality in Saskatchewan, surrounds the city and contains many of the developments associated with it, including Wanuskewin. Saskatoon is named after the saskatoon berry which is native to the region and is itself derived from the Cree misâskwatômina. The city has a significant Indigenous population and several urban Reserves. The city has nine river crossings and is nicknamed "Paris of the Prairies" and "Bridge City".

Historic neighborhoods of Saskatoon include Nutana and Riversdale, which were separate towns before amalgamating with the town of Saskatoon and incorporating as a city in 1906. Nutana, Riversdale, their historic main streets of Broadway Avenue and 20th Street, as well as the downtown core and other central neighborhoods are seeing significant reinvestment and redevelopment. Sutherland, the rail town annexed by the city in 1956 that lies beyond the University lands, is now another historic old city.

Must Visit in Saskatoon:

Wanuskewin Heritage Park
A short drive up the river leads to the proposed UNESCO World Heritage site of Wanuskewin Heritage Park, a non-profit cultural and historical center aimed at providing a better understanding of the indigenous people who originally inhabited the region. Wanuskewin is a Cree term for "living together in harmony."

Western Development Museum
Saskatoon has grown into the thriving industrial center it is today because of its rich railway roots. In 1908, a railway line brought European immigrants to the Western prairies and soon changed the essence of the region. The Western Development Museum transports you back in time with a life-size replica of 1910 Boomtown, with buildings including a school, church, laundromat, and feed store, decorated with actual artifacts.

Saskatoon Farmers Market
Take a refreshing walk along the waterfront from downtown to the Riversdale neighborhood, which hosts the farmers market on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. This year-round, indoor and outdoor market is the oldest and largest in the province and is the best place to visit to experience all the nourishing food produced in the region.

Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo
The Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo started out as a small tree nursery a century ago. It grew to become a National Historic Site in 1990, boasting crafted gardens, restored heritage buildings, and Saskatchewan's only accredited zoo. This popular attraction has more than 90 species of birds and animals in settlements resembling their natural habitats.

Taste of Saskatchewan Festival
Saskatoon prides itself in having more restaurants per capita than anywhere in Canada. A walk through downtown reveals dozens of top-notch restaurants serving diverse, locally sourced cuisine. The winner of Top Chef Canada, Dale MacKay, opened three establishments in recent years.
