Meewasin Valley information
The Meewasin Valley, formed by the South Saskatchewan's wide swath through the center of town, is named for the Cree word for beautiful. Mature trees populate the riverbanks, while sections of the 60km Meewasin Trail , extend from downtown paths, winding through forests and along the riverbank. Popular with walkers, cyclists and wandering travelers, picnic areas line the trails. Further north, Mendel Island is home to abundant wildlife.
Stop in to the informative Meewasin Valley Centre to learn about the river and the city it feeds. Guided and self-guided walking tours are available.
