  • 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!
  • Beautiful location. Amazing history and archeology. And the food is unique and delicious. Don't miss the Bannock!
  • It's really amazing! The history associated with the place is extraordinary. They are making name on international level!!
  • 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.
  • Friendly helpful staff. Lots of history in area so would recommend going on a tour. Lots of different hiking paths with nice scenery.
