  • 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 had a chance to wander the grounds where trails wind through the nearby prairie and savannah.
  • Cycled out there on the Trans Canada Trail/ The Great Trail from the University of Saskatchewan. Was a beautiful 1 hour long cycle. The park is beautiful and has some interesting sights. The rubbing stone was my favourite. Food was more expensive then I was expecting but was adequate for the price, location and ingredients.
  • Great experience making dresm-catchers with Randi. A lot of fun and educational too. Beef stew and bannock was delicious!
  • An interesting place. The lady giving a talk on teepees had a very quiet voice. Shame there were no real bison to see!
  • Lots of history and hiking. Could use better signs between the trails and between the different outdoors areas to make it more public friendly. Beautiful views along the trails and a wealth of information in the main building.
