This gorgeous city is located on the south side of the North Saskatchewan River, and people often think that there isn’t much to do around Prince Albert, but I beg to differ! There are all sorts of fun things to get up to around Prince Albert and below I have listed only a few, but some of these are the most popular and entertaining activities around the city.
Just northeast of Prince Albert resides little Red River Park. This beautiful little park has multiple winding trails for you to explore and picnic on, with plenty of amazing views and scenery. It is definitely something to see! Another popular trail would be the “Rotary trail” which goes all the way around Prince Albert’s city. You can view the trail map here. There are also multiple trails besides these ones that other people have found on this website here.
They don’t call Prince Albert “The Gateway to the North” for no reason! Believe it or not, people travel from all over to come and see the beauty around this area, especially for fishing and camping in the summer around the Lakelands. Some of the more popular lakes would be Waskesiu, Candle, and Emma, but there are plenty of smaller lakes to fish and explore that are more private and not commercialized. Just make sure you bring your fishing license and bug spray!
Saskatoon Forestry Park
I know this isn’t in Prince Albert, but I wouldn’t be talking about some of the best opportunities if I didn’t mention the Forestry Park in Saskatoon. They have wolves, bears, lynxes and many more animals that you can see a list of here. If you want to see some of Saskatchewan’s natural animals in the area this place is definitely worth a drive to some weekend.
Everybody enjoys a good game of golf! There are 4 gorgeous golf courses around Prince Albert alone to try your luck on. First, there is Cooke Municipal which is 18 holes and located right in town on 900 22 ST E, Prince Albert. Then there’s Marks Nine, Kachur’s Golf Club and Fairview Fairways which are located a short distance out of town. You can view their locations here. This is a great fun activity to go and do any day of the week.
If you venture off into somewhere away from the city’s light pollution, like Little Red Park, you may be able to see Aroura Borealis and its magnificent beauty. The further away from the light pollution you are the clearer Borealis becomes. La Ronge, which is quite far away from Prince Albert, is said to be one of the best places in the world to see the northern lights. If you’re not up for the trip there, you can go out on a very dark night and possibly catch a view of Borealis around the edges of Prince Albert.
