It’s hard to believe there is less than 2 weeks before school is out for the summer. If you’re anything like me you’re busy coming up with ideas of how to entertain your child during the summer. Or you’re a mom with a baby and want to do something outside with your baby because you’re tired of being inside watching Netflix.
We love going to new parks and exploring. My daughters are always so excited when we can go explore a new park.
Here are our top 5 Parks:
1. Kinsmen Park – 945 Spadina Cres
There are so many great things about Kinsmen Park. There is lots of parking near by, washrooms – which are a must with kids, because we all know as soon as you leave the house your child has to go to the washroom. Kinsmen Park has both a spray park and playground. And of course there is Nutrien Playland with the train, Ferris wheel and merry-go-round. There is a large area of grass, perfect for picnics and playing.
2. Bear Playground – Brighton – 200 Underhill Road
We love the bear playground! This is a nature themed playground with tons of great things for all ages. There are bears to climb on and ride, walls to climb, logs to hide in, musical instruments to play – something for everyone. We can play there for hours!
3. Gabriel Dumont Park – 715 Saskatchewan Cres W
Along the South Saskatchewan River, this park is beautiful and is the perfect spot for a family outing. Whether you’re hitting up the Meewasin Trails for a bike ride or a walk, having a picnic at one of the picnic sites, or playing on the nature inspired playground this park has it all! There are trails for walking and biking, a washroom and an amazing playground.
4. Isinger Park – 236 Sonnenschein Way
There are 2 great play structures at Isinger Park – something for all ages! Close to the river there are some beautiful walking paths to explore. This park is just across the street from the Farmers Market, so be sure to make a day out of it and explore some of the amazing local vendors.
5. WW Ashley Park – aka – the Purple Park – 814 2 St E
This is an amazing park with some many great amenities. One of the best play structures in Saskatoon, and as a bonus it’s wheelchair accessible – which is also great for your little one who may have trouble with stairs. Be sure to bring your bathing suit and check out Queen Elizabeth Paddling Pool or Lathey Pool. Lathey Pool opens June 13 and closes August 30, 2018 and is open Monday to Friday 1:00-8:00 pm and Saturday and Sunday 11:00 am-7:00 pm. We can’t forgot the skate park for the older kids. And on those rainy days check out the J.S. Wood Library.
Things to remember when you go to the park:
- Bug Spray
- Extra Clothing
- Bathing suit (for paddling pool, spray park or pool)
