The Saskatchewan provincial park system was created in 1931 with the establishment of six provincial parks. It has now grown to protect 194 separate, legally designated park lands, comprising 1.25 million hectares, including 35 provincial parks.
The mandate of the provincial park system is defined in The Parks Act as:
- Park land is dedicated to the people of Saskatchewan and visitors to Saskatchewan for their enjoyment and education.
- The natural, prehistoric and historic resources of land are to be maintained for the benefit of future generations.
