Nutrien Playland at Kinsmen Park
Celebrate the magic of play at Nutrien Playland with three star attractions that delight children and adults alike.
Soar high above the city on the 20 metre high Ferris wheel or have a twirl on a bright and cheery carousel animal. Hop aboard for a whistle-stop tour on the Canpotex Train - a park favourite. This replica modern-day freight train rolls along a 626 metre loop through the park.
Follow the pathways around the park or run free in the play areas. Work the pumps, troughs and valves in the water area or tackle the log climber and double cable ride in the sand. With many beautiful trees and rocks in the natural play space, it’s easy to forget you’re in city centre. The play area is always open and there are no admission fees.
This delightful attraction at the heart of Saskatoon is possible thanks to the generous support from Nutrien, Canpotex and Canadian Pacific.
