Top things to do with young children in Saskatoon

How to stay focused and productive

Now that Saskatoon has been enjoying some Spring vibes, we thought it was time to start dreaming of summer holidays. We love getting out and about making memories with our kiddos – no matter the weather – but particularly when it’s warmer. Here are some go to kid-friendly adventures if you need some inspiration in the coming weeks and months:

Educational and Fun Activities

The Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo is a must for the whole family. You can spend the day at the Zoo, or if you’re on a budget you can even pack a picnic and enjoy some time in the park by the pond, let the children play on the awesome playground and then head for a family walk through the grounds. There is so much to do for the whole family! The Zoo playground is also a big hit for the kids, as you head through a tunnel to find the play area. The Western Development Museum (WDM), Remai Modern and Wanuskewin Heritage Park are some other day outings perfect for stimulating your kiddos minds, while having a load of family fun too.

The Nutrien WONDERHUB (Children’s Science Museum) launches in June this year, and is no doubt going to be a fun and educational place for our littles all-year round. View the opening information and dates here.

Take your kiddos to your local library to read, look at the books, play in the children’s area or attend a Story Time, or one of their awesome events. For more information and details, check out the calendar online.

Spray Pads, Paddling Pools, Outdoor Pools

Our city is in no shortage of places to cool off. Pack a picnic and head to a Spray pad or pool with your littles. More information on opening dates and where to go right here!


The Meewasin trail is a must for all families with young children. Spend time having a picnic or taking a short walk exploring, collecting leaves, stones and pinecones. Grab some popcorn, a hotdog, some lemonade and an ice-cream from the Bus Stop Refreshments (421 21st St E) and relax with a view of our beautiful river!

Parks and Lakes

Nutrien Playland at Kinsmen Park – start with a train ride and then hop on the ferris wheel. End off your adventure with a play at the playground. The spray park and sandpit area are a must! There are numerous play parks throughout the city and in all neighbourhoods too – take your pick.

Pike Lake Provincial Park is a family favourite – head to the beach, relax and take in some rays, and end your day by swimming in the outdoor pool (complete with a waterslide).

Indoor Areas

We make use of indoor play areas all-year round as my kiddos have firm favourites – Flynn’s Forest, Learn and Play Cafe and the Stoked Centre (the bouncy castles for younger kids) based at Wilson’s Lifestyle Centre. The Leisure Centres across the city have so much to offer, and the indoor pools and play areas are a big hit with the littles! The Soccer Centre hosts an indoor playgroup with two fully enclosed fields full of toys & riding cars for preschoolers & babies.

Mommy Classes

Connecting with other Mums, and letting our littles play with other kids their age is really important to us.

Little Hands and Me have Salsa babies, Salsa Tots and Baby Sign classes – find all the information here. Tanya believes that this time of our lives should be remembered forever and we couldn’t agree more. Plan to head out the house and connect with other Moms in a similar life stage in a supportive and non-judgemental environment. Classes are filling up for Spring – so register now.

Hailey from Hailey the Doula and Tanya from Little Hands and Me are hosting a Blessed not Stressed Moms Cafe starting the 18th April – it’s a weekly afternoon meet-up filled with coffee, connection and community.

Mommy Connections Saskatoon has a variety of classes for Mum, Baby and Toddler. Find your village and sign up for the next batch of classes today – click here.

Introducing Ask Mum

Hello there

We are so glad you’ve joined us, and we are excited to share our heart for this platform. Our goal is to become the go to online platform for busy Mums; a one-stop shop showcasing the best products and services for all things Mum, Baby and Toddler. And the best part? It’s specific to your location. You’re welcome 😉 

Where are we based?

At the moment we have launched the brand in Saskatoon (Canada) and we cannot wait to grow with our communities and launch new directories across Canada and beyond. 

Our aim

Mums are the busiest people out there, and we are happy to help calm the crazy just a little bit. We work with amazing local businesses to make sure that we are offering Mums only the best in terms of product and services, and our list of businesses is growing daily.

Our directory will be live in the coming months on this online platform. On the completed online platform you will be able to browse through the local businesses and what they have to offer (directory), read blog articles relating to both Mum-relevant material and product and service or local business features, peruse the review and giveaway information, and much much more. Oh, we are a little bit too eager to get going!

Thank you for being part of this community – to the Mums and local businesses who support us – we can’t wait to see how this Mum Tribe blossoms. Here’s to the future 🙂
