We really enjoyed our visit to Wanuskewin Heritage Park. A brief film gave a great introduction to the site and its significance. I was blown away when I realized that the site of the buffalo jump is older than the pyramids. It took me a second to really grasp that. As we walked on the trails I had no difficulty... More

We attended this site on a Sunday morning, it was quiet in and outside. The interpretive signs were well marked out and there are a few nice scenic viewpoints. There was a video which explained what Wanuskewin is about. The video is worth watching. The display of Buffalo in the interpretive centre was interesting, but that was really a that... More

Having wanted to visit this site for many years. Yesterday we went with company from the UK and were very disappointed in the services, staff and in particular the restaurant. The food was reasonable but vastly overpriced. We would not recommend to anyone.

We arrived at the centre to watch a short film about the heritage area. We were lucky enough to finish that & walk right to a traditional dancer who showed up to dance. He performed a few dances & explained the history of his outfit. It was cool! Excitedly, we ventured onto one of the nature walks. We chose a... More

I was in Saskatoon on business and our hosts arranged an evening at Wanuskewin for us. It is an impressive place with a lot of indiginous history. Your initial impression is one of peace, tranquility and a growing sense of relaxation. There are many first nations artifacts and impressive works of art. There is also a well-stocked gift shop. We... More

I revisited Wanuskewn Heritage Park after many years. Two art galleries, a gift shop. And a series of wonderful trails above and in the Saskatchewan River valley. There's an archeological dig to visit. Creeks and ponds an the river itself. Wonderful place for families, children and just plain old hiking. I'll go again and again when I visit Saskatoon. Make...

Wanuskewin has a little something for everyone. It has well explained history, nice walking trails and even a playground for the kids. The treaty history provides better insight to what occurred in this part of Saskatchewan, Canada. The trails are great as you can walk for hours in the valleys and understand why this was a great place for capturing... More

I was there today for an announcement that Wanuskewin is applying to become a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage-designated site. Oddly enough, I thought that they already had that designation. Perhaps I was confusing it with provincial heritage property designation in 1983 or the time, in 1987, when Queen Elizabeth II declared it a National... More

We visited Wanuskewin during a road trip from Edmonton to Winnipeg, and we spent a couple hours at the park visiting the art exhibits, walking the trails in the valley, and taking a guided walk through some of the sacred places on site. I highly recommend taking a guided walk with one of the interpreters on site, as it will... More
