Founders Parks Walking Tour
Along Main Street Minnedosa you will find twelve (12) “Founders Parks” with historically designed park benches, tree guards and garbage can covers as well as unique concrete retaining walls and greenery. Each park also features a plaque recognizing some of our town founders.
Pick up a pamphlet indicating locations and GPS coordinates or just meander down Main Street and discover them yourself.
Close to town centre are the Historic or Nature walking trails (also called Oxbow Trail), with options of walking across the spillway, around the bison compound, along the marsh walkway, across the Swinging Bridge, through the Heritage Village.
You can start this trail either in the downtown area, by the spillway, at Heritage Village, by the Bison compound or other access points. Enjoy nature as you hike near the river. You might spot a beaver or see a variety of birds. Check out the young bison in their compound. There is a lookout tower along the trail to see above the tree line and get your bearings!
North of the Little Saskatchewan River and west of Tanner’s Crossing School is a newly developed recreational park including walking trails, bike park, Rotary picnic area, Lion’s dog park, and disc golf (contact Gateway Motel 204-867-2729, to borrow discs).
