Thinking of going for a walk, wondering what to check out on your travels and where you should go? Look no further. Here are the 6 best places to walk in Saskatoon:

1. The Bessborough (601 Spadina Crescent East)

The most beautiful and oldest (I think) hotel in Saskatoon. Rumor has it, that the hotel is haunted but THAT has nothing to do with walking, unless you take a stroll inside. And you should. But for the sake of this list, I am suggesting the river walk around the Bessborough (also called The Bess, if you live here). It is beautiful. As an added perk, you will see and possbily enjoy, the Saskatoon Bus Stop Refreshments! (Spadina Crescent & 21st Street East).

2. Broadway (near the river/bridge area)

Broadway itself is a fun place to spend a day shopping, taking in a little of our culture and maybe some drinks BUT if you are on a walking mission stay around the river and bridge. Saskatoon has beautiful bridges, (duh, we’re practically famous for them!) and the walking areas around the river give Saskatoon a quaint city feel. If you love to walk, walk towards the next bridge, either Victoria (which is our oldest) or the University (which is very popular).

3. Forestry Farm Park (1903 Forestry Farm Park Drive)

Most people think of animals, but there is a beautiful park, that has a path running around the perimeter OR you can talk a nature walk right through the center and chart your own course. Lots of scenery and family gatherings.

4. Off Leash Parks

You do not need a dog to enjoy the off leash areas (although it DOES make it more comfortable!). We have several to check out around Saskatoon. I have included links to a map for your convenience.

5. Meewasin (in Silverwood Heights area)

Great path to walk on with your children or leashed pets. The area is quiet and very scenic. You will be greeting other walkers, people on bikes and runners along the way.

6. Anywhere in Saskatoon

There are a couple of areas that I would avoid at night, as in 22nd Street West and 20th Street West and any streets running through those streets. However, aside from that area, Saskatoon is a beautiful city for walking through. Our city is small and a large space can be covered and discoveries made over a short period of time. I recommend starting in one area of town without a plan or a direction in mind and let the day take you where it will. You will enjoy this unique perspective of Saskatoon.

If you have any great walking places to add or you want to add more details to the places we have listed, please feel free!
