West Central Cities

Saskatoon

The city of Saskatoon is another gem in the heart of Saskatchewan. Back in 1882 the founders of Saskatchewan’s largest city pitched their tents on the banks of the South Saskatchewan River, searching for Utopia.

Saskatoon’s major attractions include Wanuskewin Heritage Park and the Western Development Museum/1910 Boomtown. The city also has many craft shops and galleries, a fine symphony orchestra, four professional theatre companies and a very active amateur theatre community with six companies. Summer is festival time with Folkfest, the SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, and the Saskatoon International Fringe Festival.

The Battlefords

The Battlefords form a popular vacation spot in the historic heart of Saskatchewan. Battleford was the original seat of government for the Northwest Territories from 1876 to 1882. Fort Battleford National Historic Site, an old North West Mounted Police post in the Battlefords, also dates back to that period.

Don’t miss the Western Development Museum/Heritage Farm and Village, and the Allen Sapp Gallery, showcasing the works of the famous Cree artist, Allen Sapp.  Major events include the Saskatchewan Handcraft Festival, Jackfish Lake Ice Fishing Derby, Sakicawasihk Pow-Wow and the North West Territorial Days.

Lloydminster

The City of Lloydminster is Canada’s only Border City! Straddling the Saskatchewan/Alberta border, the City was founded in 1903 as North America’s largest single colony. The Barr Colony Heritage Cultural Centre tells this story and more through its OTS Heavy Oil Science Centre, the Larsen Museum, and the Wild Life Exhibit.

Other major attractions at Lloydminster include the World’s Tallest Border Markers and North America’s largest working sundial in Bud Miller All Seasons Park. Activities include a petting zoo, swimming pools, a theatre company, interprovincially ranked golf courses, and shopping featuring national chains and local boutiques. Events run all year long, with the summer highlighted by the Colonial Days Exhibition and the Canadian Pro Chuckwagon Finals.
