PotashCorp Playland at Kinsmen Park
Celebrate the magic of play at PotashCorp Playland at Kinsmen Park in Saskatoon. It reopened in 2015 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 moden-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 PotashCorp, Canpotex and Canadian Pacific.
Parking is available at the PotashCorp Playland at Kinsmen Park Parking Lot, the Mendel site, and north of the YWCA (off Kinsmen Avenue).
Please note: all rides will not be functioning if there is inclement weather.

Kinsmen Play Village Project
As part of the Kinsmen Park Master Plan, the Kinsmen Play Village paddling pool, building structures and old concrete will be removed fall 2016. The accessible play structure, tot lot play structure, saucer swings, and balance beam will remain in Kinsmen Park. The rubber safety surface will be replaced spring 2017. The popular pelican slide from the paddling pool has been donated to the Children’s Discovery Museum and will be incorporated into the new Children’s Discovery Museum at the Mendel building. Following the removal, revitalization of the park area will begin. This will include landscaping and planting grass to bring the area back to a natural park space.
