<In no particular order>
1. Tourism Moose Jaw Trolley tour – This is something we say we are going to do every year and we haven’t yet. It’s written on the internet now, so it’s happening! Currently there are 3 types of tours available – Daytime , Ghost Tour, and True Crime.
2. Tunnels of Moose Jaw – Another tour we say we are going to do, but haven’t yet! We are patiently waiting for the tunnels to open for the season, so we can finally check them out!
3. Prairie Bee Meadery tour – Is this family friendly? I’m not quite sure. I think the boys would be interested in the bees part, and mom and dad would certainly be interested in the wine part!
4. Saskatchewan Burrowing Owl Interpretive Centre – Another seasonal gem offered in Moose Jaw. We are currently very into the Wild Kratts, so anything where you are learning about animals is a hit.
5. Battle Creek Adventure Park <mini golf> – I have been dying to do a sunset round here, the views look amazing . As Canada’s largest mini golf course we might have to ditch the kids for this one, although it’s definitely a family friendly activity!
6. Free to Be Me Animal Sanctuary – a local non-profit that rescues animals that have been abused, neglected, and injured. We’ve seen their animals at Co-op family day (2019). Just outside of Moose Jaw, they do accept visitors on weekends (I think… more info to come.)
7. Western Development Museum – Always a hit, I love the open space the museum offers, AND the history. They offer great scavenger hunts and other games while exploring the museum. At every visit you see something new (well old, but you know what I mean).
8. Wakamow Valley Park– You can do it all here! Canoe/ kayak, playgrounds, bike, walk, frisbee golf, markets, food trucks, BBQ or even camp at River Park campground . They have a fantastic trail system that we love all year round.
9. Crescent Park – Crescent Park to Moose Jaw is Central Park to New York City (in my eyes). We love going to the Saturday Homegrown Farmers Market followed by a walk (or play) around the park. I love the amphitheater, and fingers crossed for some shows this year. They also have a spray park, playground, pool, wading pool, a fountain (kids love fountains right?), and walking path (ft bridges). The beautiful Moose Jaw Public Library, and the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery are in the park as well – check out the tree rejuvenation carvings, and summer library programs when you visit.
10. Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village Museum – Another place that takes you back in time. Just outside of Moose Jaw, Sukanen Ship is a volunteer ran non- profit. This place is MASSIVE. This is a 2-3 hour visit (likely longer) and covers A LOT of ground. When we last visited we were there for about 3 hours and only left because it was closing (and we were tired 😂). There’s so much to see here, and lots of space for kids to run around.
There’s so much to do! I encourage you to take advantage of all that is offered in Moose Jaw this summer, we love this city.
