Saskatoon is divided by the North Saskatchewan River and so River Landing is a beautiful new place to walk right along the river bank. It is nicely landscaped and there are little surprising features all along it. Like the tree grates. Each one was unique and I just needed to share
I loved the fountain with the beavers playing in it and building their dam and I recognized the half hidden canoes immediately. I knew if Sam had been there he would have been running around them and hiding in them too!
But my favourite part was the splash pad. It was all set up like you were walking across the prairies.
There are a lot of wind turbines in southern Alberta which are represented by the windmill. And the border is delineated by old licence plates which I thought was super-cool!
Here's Saskatoon, wheat and the North Saskatchewan River coming down to meet the South Saskatchewan. They even had Diefenbaker Dam which you could open and close to stop the water. (You can see a corner of the dam in the bottom left hand corner.) And all the water from the splash pad flowed into a marsh where it watered plants there. Another feature of River Landing is that it is environmentally sustainable.
