The University of Saskatchewan
The University of Saskatchewan is well known for its elegant Collegiate Gothic buildings, and the arrangement and scale of these structures are a big part of their appeal. But often overlooked are the exterior spaces – the landscape surrounding the buildings – that are essential to the campus aesthetic.
Leo Kristjanson Agriculture Atrium This atrium
is named in honour of Leo F. Krisjanson, president of the University of Saskatchewan, 1980-1989, who brought the dream of an agricultural sciences complex to fruition.
The Palliser Garden is a courtyard in between Qu’Appelle Hall and Marquis Hall. It is sometimes used for private functions in warmer weather. Its enclosed location makes it almost a hidden space, which makes it quiet and private.
The Sculpture Garden is between the Education Building and the Diefenbaker Canada Center.
The Peter MacKinnon Building at the University of Saskatchewan is a National Historic Site of Canada. This historical building is an excellent example of university buildings in the classic Elizabethan shape in Collegiate Gothic style.

Gabriel Dumont Park & Meewasin Parks
Gabriel Dumont Park is named for one of the Métis leader of the Northwest Resistance of 1885. This park includes both a natural prairie ecoscape and a typical urban park complete with children’s play village, picnic tables, and washroom facilities. The parking lot is accessible via Saskatchewan Crescent West.
Meewasin Park, located in the city’s northwest, features a playground, barbecue pits, picnic tables, in
winter a groomed cross-country ski trail, and a warm-up shelter with washroom facilities open year round. The
parking lot is accessible from Spadina Crescent.
Sutherland Beach has beautifully forested hiking and ski trails that wind their way alongside the South Saskatchewan River. Road access to the parking lot is from Central Avenue just north of Attridge Drive, look for the “Sutherland Beach” sign.
Meewassin River Walks
The Meewasin Valley is an oasis of exceptional beauty in the midst of the Saskatchewan prairies. Stretching nearly
sixty kilometers, from Pike Lake in the southwest to Clarke’s Crossing in the northeast, the Meewasin Valley follows the winding curve of the South Saskatchewan River as it passes through the rural municipality of Corman Park and the city of Saskatoon. Many of the parks and sites are located along the lovely
Meewasin Valley Trail, a must-see attraction. The trail runs along both sides of the river, winding under the bridges, and through beautifully landscaped parks and natural areas. Residents and visitors flock to the trail to cycle, jog, stroll or simply gaze at the scenery.
Cosmopolitan Park / Lookout
The park has benches, a paved upper trail and a wood-chipped lower trail (for hikers
only). Signage at the lookout shows the development of the city’s downtown area from original settlers’ tents all the way to skyscrapers. The Pioneer Memorial Cairn is also located here, near the Broadway Bridge.
