5 Ways to Play at Nutrien Playland at Kinsmen Park This Summer
1| Climb Aboard
There’s room for everyone aboard the Nutrien Playland Ferris wheel! These colourful pods overlooking the South Saskatchewan River to the east and a lovely green expanse of urban park to the west, take the whole family on a gentle ride to one of the most beautiful views in Saskatoon. And if that’s not enough, board the Canpotex Train for a chug around the park grounds.
2| Take a wild ride
Take a wild ride on one of two double cable rides at Nutrien Playland, and hold on tight! Feel the wind blow through your hair as you whiz down the line on a thrilling journey you won’t soon forget!
3| Cool down
A summer’s day in the Saskatoon sun can be hot, but Nutrien Playland has got you covered, literally! Picnic in the shade of one of the dozens of mature trees that call Kinsmen Park home, and don’t forget your bathing suit. Nutrien Playland also has unique spray pad and water features that will keep your kids busy (and cool) for hours. Top it all off with a round of ice cream cones from the concession, everyone’s a winner!
4| Get the monkeys off your back
Are your little monkeys home from school and hanging from the ceiling? Why set them loose on one of Nutrien Playland’s awesome climbing frames?! Structures are situated on forgiving sand and rubbered surfaces, ideal for gentle landings.
5| Swing & Spin
Take your turn on the double saucer swings with room for two (or three)! Or get your dizzy-on as you balance on the gigantic Dutch disc or brave the rapid whirling of the small but mighty spinner bowls that will leave your head in a tizzy.
and pinch your pennies while you’re at it…
Nutrien Playland’s Ferris Wheel, Merry-go-Round, and Mini-Locomotive only cost $2 per ride! Or you can buy a Play Pack which will give you 12 rides for the price of 10. The rest of the park is yours to enjoy ABSOLUTELY FREE!
