Top Picks: Kids' Activities in Provincial Parks

Hit the Trails

Choose your own adventure – dramatic landscapes shaped by ancient glaciers, with jewel-like lakes or Saskatchewan’s only destination backpacking trail in the Provincial Park system that spans 120km (the Boreal Trail). No matter which trail you decide on, you are sure to find yourself surrounded by breathtaking views. 
Hot Spots:
Meadow Lake Provincial Park – Boreal Trail
Narrow Hills Provincial Park 
What better way to see a park then on your bike? Biking with your family allows you to explore further into the park. Hit the trails at your own pace and discover each parks diverse ecosystem.

Enjoy a Beach Day Getaway

Imagine sitting on the warm sand as you stick your toes in the water, while the kids are busy in the water. Many of Saskatchewan’s Provincial Parks have beaches, but these two hot spots offer something unexpected (purple sand, Candle Lake) and unique (Maclean’s “Top 10 Beaches in Canada” features Good Spirit Lake).

Go on a Paddling Adventure

While exploring our parks, you and your family can discover incredible canoeing opportunities. Whether you are first-time paddlers or advanced boaters, there is a body of water out there with your name on it. The historic Churchill River, located in Lac La Ronge Provincial Park, offers unspoiled wilderness experiences.

Discover Local Sand Dunes

Prairie desert oases await. Sand dunes are the perfect place to let your imagination run wild – are you in Saskatchewan or in the Sahara?

Take a Dip

Cool down during those summer scorchers with a dip in the lake. If you are a boating family and tubing is your summer standard then you have come to the right place. No boat? No problem. Stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking and canoe rentals can be arranged (availability depends on which park you are visiting).
