Visit the Last Mountain Distillery, and take the Saturday tour that walks you through the process of turning local grain into the good stuff. Hit the Wascana Trails for gentle hiking or biking, and drink in the beautiful valley scenery. Stop at Over the Hill Orchards and Winery, and pick up a bottle of wine or tasty Prairie Cherry Chocolates.
Descend into the Tunnels of Moose Jaw to relive the bootlegging days and learn intriguing stories about their history. The Western Development Museum will give you a wealth of trains, planes, automobiles and other crazy vehicles to admire. A Déjà Vu Café meal is not to be missed, try the deep-fried pickles and shakes. Delve into the past at the Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village & Museum. Go for a relaxing soak in Canada’s largest geothermal mineral water pool at Temple Gardens Hotel & Spa. Finish with a visit to Mac the Moose, the giant iconic landmark you’ll insist on having your photo taken with.
Once used by First Nations to corral bison, the park maintains a captive herd in a paddock that’s situated among the area’s scenic rolling hills. This park offers excellent hiking, mountain biking, and fat biking trails, fishing, swimming, canoeing, and kayaking opportunities.
Park entry fees are $10 per vehicle for the day or $75 for an annual park entry permit.
