Walking Tours and Open House
Jane's Walk is typically held the first weekend in May. All guided walks are cancelled because of COVID19 restrictions. The Friends of the Forestry Farm House have created a virtual walk for this occasion. Visit janeswalksaskatoon.ca to access our walkinthepark pdf to take along on your walk.
Arbor Week is May 21 to May 29, a great time for a Walk in the Park. The end of May is an excellent time to take in the flowering crab apples in the park. There are a couple of great flowering ones in the main parking lot and also in the Meditation Garden and Heritage Rose Garden. Take a walk in the park, download your pdf from the Jane's Walk website listed above.
