Saskatchewan has two national parks: Prince Albert National Park of Canada, in the north central region of the province, and Grasslands National Park of Canada in the southwest.
Check out Tourism Saskatchewan’s National Parks webpage for more information.
Saskatchewan has 34 provincial parks in four categories: wilderness, recreational, natural environment and historic parks. Each park showcases specific natural features and offers a range of recreation and education opportunities.
Saskatchewan is home to nearly 100 regional parks, all designed, developed, and built by local communities. They not only reflect the strong community pride you’ll find all across Saskatchewan, they also provide many recreational opportunities for locals and visitors alike.
Tourism Saskatchewan operates a webpage dedicated to the many Saskatchewan cities with beautiful urban parks including Swift Current, Saskatoon, Moose Jaw, Regina, Weyburn, North Battleford and Prince Albert.
