Discover the Land of the Living Skies

Most people when they think about what there is to see in Saskatchewan they think of the Prairies. This is indeed a fantastic sight which changes dramatically with the seasons. Saskatchewan is also home to many other impressive sights and attractions including the Saskatchewan Provincial Legislative Building in Regina. Built in 1919 at a cost of $3 million from 34 types of marble brought in from around the world, the legislative building offers free tours of its interior and galleries.

The legislature sits in one of the largest urban parks in the world: Wascana Centre. At a size of over 2,300 acres, Wascana Centre is about 8 times the size of the downtown area and is comprised of parkland, Wascana Lake, picnic areas and the Wascana Waterfowl Park Display Ponds.

One of the other top attractions in Saskatchewan, also in Regina, is the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Training Depot and Centennial Museum. You can observe recruits training, watch the Sunset Ceremony and browse the facility’s museum.

West of Regina is the city of Moose Jaw famous for its underground tunnels. Constructed during the prohibition to smuggle alcohol, the tunnels are also rumoured to have been Al Capone’s hideout.

During the summer months you can float weightless in Little Manitou Lake in south central Saskatchewan. Due to its geographic location the lake is effectively a tiny sea and has more than 13 times the salt content of the Dead Sea.

Another sight that can’t be missed, even if you try, are the famous Saskatchewan Skies. Storms, sunrises, sunsets, cloud formations – year round – just looking up can be an impressive spectacle which is why Saskatchewan is known as the “Land of the Living Skies”.
