Enjoyable part of Canadian history

Lots of different events at different times of the year. Great way to better understand indigenous history. Beautiful trails and interior display as well.

Initially drawn by the intriguing First Nations cuisine offered at the café, we were excited to learn so much about the nature, culture, and history of this meeting place. The video and guided trail walk were both much richer than we had expected. Try the muskeg tea!

For more than 6 millennia people have gathered at this site and it holds great meaning to the First Nations people particularly the Cree in Saskatchewan. It was the site of at least two buffalo jumps and several short-term and long term settlements. It is the site of several current and past archeological digs. In 1992 the Wanuskewin Heritage Park...

We are residents of Saskatoon and have visited this park several times since it opened in 1992. Our most recent visit was extremely disappointing...no comparison to what it used to be. We used to take visitors here but won't do that again. Almost all of the displays of aboriginal artifacts and culture have been removed. Dirty wine glasses and plates... More

We arrived at the park at 9:45. The walks and the birds were just lovely! The interpretive signs were very useful. Then we had a terrific lunch. They had two really good vegetarian options and my husband really enjoyed the bison stew. In the afternoon there was a wonderful hoop dancer. There were lots of school tours but the kids... More

This Heritage Park is just great. Take some good shoes and learn a lot about how the Plains Indians (Cree First Nation once lived in the High Prairie of Saskatchewan.

Listen to the rocks ... Listen to the rocks. A wonderful walk in nature with special points of interest. Good shoes and a walking stick are handy for this walking tour of nature paths. View nature one step at a time look into the past as the rocks speak to you.

They have a nice museum inside and there are a few movie clips to watch about the history, but the outside trails are self-guided with limited information and the trials are not wheelchair accessible.
