Top 5 Things to do During Riders Training Camp in Saskatoon
The Saskatchewan Roughriders Training Camp is a lot of fun for die-hard fans, but if you’re looking to branch out to find additional family friendly activities around Saskatoon, we’ve got you covered.
Just a step away from downtown, the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market is home to La Taqueria Mexicana and the Riverbend Plantation Market, as well as dozens of vendors offering fresh produce and Saskatchewan-made goods. Take some time on a weekday or Saturday morning and get to know the friendly people and tasty food.
Just north of the city, Wanuskewin Heritage Park is a celebration of Plains Indigenous history and culture, with shaded trails leading through the Opimihaw Valley, archaeological digs, an interpretive centre, and even a medicine wheel. On weekday afternoons, enjoy a traditional dance performance, followed by an archaeology site walk and dig tour, pending guide availability.
Make a Splash
Sometimes it’s the simple things that make a difference. Check out the Nutrien Playland, which comes complete with a ferris wheel, carousel, train ride, mini zipline and a splash pad. It’s perfect for a hot weekend day or weekday afternoon.
Kids love to run and jump, so why not put some extra air under their feet? At Apex Trampoline Park, you can jump around on the trampolines or play indoor bubble soccer. Apex has designated Toddler Times for children under the age of six.
Go to the Festival
From June 2-5, check out the Nutrien Children’s Festival of Saskatchewan in Kinsmen Park. The festival is packed with entertainment and activities for kids, from performances by Wanuskewin Heritage Park dancers to children’s theatre productions.
