A very nice building in a great location. We hiked two of the three trails and it was a peaceful walk. We expected more in terms of displays and art work in the building. People we were with had been previously and had memories of great displays. We didn't try out the restaurant but looked like lots of selections to choose from. The gift shop had some nice items for sale. Sadly many of the items are not locally made or even Canadian. I would be more interested in purchasing locally produced items.

We were recently visiting Saskatoon and decided on the Heritage Park as our outing for a Monday. We have been to many indigenous parks and museums in the USA so thought we would do something in regards to Canadian indigenous. This park was awesome - beautiful walks on a fall day, interesting stop points, cool gallery installation of a maze made of wood pieces, stunning buffalo displays. This is a slow time of year and the front receptionist gave us some quick info about the park that we appreciated. We never visited the restaurant but it was pretty too. Overall a lovely day with trails that made it easy to imagine life hundreds of years ago. My only issue was while visiting the gift store, some of the items that I was interested in that looked like they may have been made locally were made in India... so made me not trust other items. But that's a small point in an otherwise beautiful place.

So beautiful to walk the trails here and the scenery is so lovely. Enjoyed the instruction on teepee building. Enjoyed the traditional dancing performed. Gift shop is pricey so didn't buy anything. The statutes of the buffalo and bears out front are incredible. Would highly recommend a visit.

We had family visiting from Ontario and Manitoba and decided to spend the afternoon at the Heritage Park. We took in the construction of the Tee Pee, the guided tour outdoors to see the archeological digs and the Ring Dancer. The gift store had many delightful items. Good idea to allow extra time to walk the paths and explore the area.
