If you’re stuck with your family on vacation you might as well do something fun with them. If that vacation has brought you to Saskatoon then you are in luck! If not… well, you could always make a break for it! In Saskatoon there’s always family fun to be had – we have one of the country’s youngest demographics after all.
First, choose your adventure: inside or outside? No matter the time of year, chances are there’s an activity or event perfect for your fam – just check our listings!
To get outdoors and hopefully tire Junior out enough for a peaceful night’s sleep, head to Nutrien Playland at Kinsmen Park. It will keep youngsters entertained and parents sane for hours. Take a twirl on the whimsical carousel or hop on the 20-metre high Ferris wheel. Everyone loves a Ferris wheel – riding them, posing in front of them, watching them. They bring joy to the heart, and butterflies in the stomach! If heights aren’t your thing then you can even ride a mini replica Canpotex freight train through the park - toot toot! Here comes the fun train!
For a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, visit Calories Restaurant on Broadway Avenue. This Saskatoon favourite is famous for its delicious cheesecake selection, which should do the trick. Note: Adults will love the local food-focused and suggested pairings menu. Don’t forget to get yourself a cappuccino for the road!
Because we’re a city that goes 24/7, rain, shine, wind chill or blizzard, the list of indoor options is varied. Youngsters will have a blast at the Children’s Discovery Museum (opening soon!), while tweens and teens can put their puzzle skills to the test at Break Out Escape & Game Lounge. Gramps and Gran will love watching the kids rip around the indoor go-cart track at Stoked Centre’s Velocity Speedway or play a round alongside them at Mar’s Mini Golf. Still got some energy to burn? Jump around at Saskatoon’s trampoline park, Apex!
