Located in central Saskatchewan in a transitional zone from boreal to aspen parkland, the city of Prince Albert is known as Saskatchewan’s ‘Gateway to the North’.
City parks, including Crescent Acres Park and Prime Ministers’ Park, host baseball and soccer pitches, while golfers can hit the links at the Prince Albert Golf & Curling Club or Waskesiu Golf Course, which is located right in Prince Albert National Park! Just an hour north of the city, the national park is known for its forested hiking, biking and and horseback riding trails and over 1,500 lakes and rivers where visitors can fish, paddle, and swim. Come winter, this terrain is favoured by cross-country skiers, snowshoers, and snowmobilers.
As a small city big on charm, Prince Arthur is the perfect place to go for a stroll. Check out farmers’ markets and street fairs, browse for unique souvenirs, and enjoy creative performances and rodeos when shows pass through town.
In addition to summer and winter activities and classic Canadian scenery—and with it, unparalleled wildlife viewing opportunities—Prince Albert offers an off-the-beaten-track experience and is a popular place to rent a cottage in Saskatchewan.+ More
