Welcoming Communities

East Central communities are nestled in gorgeous natural surroundings. Each has something different to offer, but you will find they have one thing in common – friendly, welcoming residents.

Yorkton, the region’s largest urban centre, offers a diverse culture and fascinating heritage. Be sure to visit Yorkton’s Western Development Museum to learn more about Saskatchewan’s ethnic diversity, then, try your luck at the Painted Hand Casino.

The Gallagher Centre, Yorkton’s impressive multipurpose facility and convention centre, is equipped to serve the community, surrounding areas and visitors with numerous activities. The city of Yorkton and surrounding area are also growing in popularity with geotourism enthusiasts. GPS units are available, on loan from Tourism Yorkton, for those adventures eager to discover hidden treasures.

Melville has historic ties with the railroad and offers a broad selection of things to see and do. Pay a visit to one of several museums, explore the 70-acre regional park, meander along a serene walking path, or play a round of golf.

Manitou Springs Resort & Mineral Spa, located at Manitou Beach, is one of Canada’s top mineral spas. Melfort, “City of Northern Lights,” features an excellent art gallery, plenty of family fun at the Northern Lights Palace and many great outdoor activities, including a nationally accredited water ski site.

Nipawin’s exceptional services and accommodations make it a popular resort destination. Located between two magnificent lakes, the area is considered to be one of the best spots for walleye fishing in North America. Arts and culture thrive among the community of Langenburg, home to an array of craft shops that feature Saskatchewan-made products.
