Having fun in the sun is easy when you live in beautiful Prince Albert, located on the south side of the North Saskatchewan River in Canada. If you’re looking for some entertaining summertime activities in the area, choose from the wide variety below:
Kinsmen Water Park Open from early June to late August, this water park offers enough activities to fill an entire day including two waterslides, a river ride slide, a whirlpool, two tot slides, a tot pool, a main pool and a leisure pool with a spray umbrella and spray tree. It also features picnic/patio areas, a play apparatus and a canteen.
Downtown Art Walk
Held on the first Thursday of each month from June to early September, several art galleries, restaurants and businesses host an evening art walk in downtown Prince Albert. Participants join a walking tour to enjoy a wide spectrum of art created by local and provincial artists. Venues include the Mann Art Gallery, GP Carlson Gallery, John V. Hicks, Grace Campbell Gallery, On the Avenue, Bison Cafe, Prim & Proper Decor, Funky Fresh Cafe & Bistro, The Rusty Owl and The Tartan Table.
Prince Albert National Park
Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy camping, cycling, hiking, canoeing, waterskiing and wakeboarding at Prince Albert National Park during our beautiful summer months. Waskesiu, the lakeside town that serves as the park’s center, offers an inviting beach where you can bask in the sun and swim, or you can venture deep into the park to explore backcountry lakes and enjoy wild flora and fauna including birds, deer, moose, and bison.
This event, just for kids, is usually held each year in mid-July in Prince Albert’s Kinsmen Park. It’s great family fun with many free activities for kids of all ages including: balloon animals, bubble stations, stilt-walkers, princesses, stage shows, and lots of fun games. You might want to bring along some money for the food stands and vendor booths, because you know the kids are going to ask.
Little Red River Park
Walk, hike, and bike through 1,200 acres of spectacular nature while visiting Prince Albert’s largest park. Little Red River Park is located just five minutes from downtown on Highway 55 towards Candle Lake and is especially beautiful in the summer months. The 5-kilometre River Trail multi-use loop takes you through all the ecosystems in the park. There’s also a playground for the kids, a picnic site and camp kitchens with BBQ pits. And don’t miss the famous Swinging Bridge, a pedestrian suspension bridge that traverses over the Spruce River.
Prince Albert Exhibition Annual Summer Fair
Held each year toward the end of July, the Prince Albert Exhibition Annual Summer Fair kicks off with a 2-hour parade that ends at Exhibition Grounds. The event features everything you’d expect from a fair including amusement rides, concession booths, livestock shows, races, a tractor pull and much more. There are special activities just for kids, and grandstand entertainment for everyone’s enjoyment.
