  • Spent a few hours on the trails outside, exploring the area. Beautiful views, breathtaking scenery, and an afternoon of exercise and fresh air. I came back to the Centre to find a powwow dance demonst...  read more »
  • We went to hike the fantastic trails, had a great time doing so, then we had a lovely lunch, spent quality time checking out the museum, and spent an hour watching dancing - well worth a visit. 
  • Just OK for inside features, not much to see, didn't walk any of the trails. If looking for a cultural experience, it was ok 
  • Very peaceful and knowledgeable park. The trails are great to explore and full of Saskatoon berries! I found it to be a fantastic way to learn about the history of the native tribes and their ordeal through the years. Awesome experience and definitely worth staying for the dance performance!
  • Gorgeous location. Great educational site. The staff are awesome.
  • Friendly helpful staff. Lots of history in area so would recommend going on a tour. Lots of different hiking paths with nice scenery.
  • This heritage site is an under appreciated gem in Saskatoon. If you live in the city and haven't visited, you're missing out. The outdoor trails and interpretive signage help depict an image of what life was like for the first nations who live along the river. Make sure to check out their website and schedule of activities before visiting - they often have great creative hands on demonstrations and activities that are super fun to participate in.
  • Delicious meal, incredibly beautiful walking paths, excellent hoop dancing demonstration.
