History of Chief Whitecap Park

Something for Everyone

Chief Whitecap Park is located south of the city limits on Cartwright Street and is bordered by the South Saskatchewan River to the west, the Riverside Country Club to the south, and the Hamlet of Furdale to the north and east.

The City of Saskatoon is proposing a Master Plan for Chief Whitecap Park that provides “Something for Everyone”.  This proposed plan seeks to develop the park in a way that preserves its natural experience, enhances the biodiversity of its habitat, increases passive recreation and interpretive options, and provides more access.  In working with our partners, Meewasin Valley Authority, Rural Municipality (RM) of Corman Park, Whitecap Dakota First Nation and other stakeholders, the City of Saskatoon has developed a plan that best meets the needs of the broadest range of users.  The revised Master Plan describes the many programs that are able to coexist within the area.

The Chief Whitecap Park Draft Master Plan was approved by City Council in June 2010 and the Meewasin Valley Authority in September 2010.  City Administration is currently working with the RM of Corman Park to formalize the permitted program uses identified in the Master Plan and is anticipating that all Master Plan approvals will be complete by Fall 2012.

More information on the Draft Master Plan and development process can be found in the table to the right.
