Saskatoon is dotted with numerous small parks, often strung together to form a ‘linear park’ feel. This run is through four adjacent parks just west of the city centre. Note there aren’t distinct paths through all of the parks, so some of the route is along perimeter roads. The fields are most runnable in summer and fall.
The southernmost park is Leif Erickson Park. Head north, along the park’s paths, into Scott Park. Do a loop around the running track! Continue north, along Avenue O N, and then McMillan Ave., into Pierre Radisson Park. Cross 33rd St. into Henry Kelsey Park, and continue through this park’s paths and fields for nearly 1.5 km, to 38th St. For the return, retrace your steps. The neighborhood streets on either side of the parks are also runnable — wide, and with good sidewalks.
Add-Ons: The neighborhood streets around the parks are also very runnable. They’re wide and have good sidewalks.
