      Home to one of the rarest geographical formations in Canada, the Blackstrap Provincial Park takes its name after the manmade mountain that rises 45 metres above the surrounding prairies. A 35-minute drive south of Saskatoon, this park is the perfect place to enjoy a wide range of summer activities including swimming, camping, fishing and mountain biking.
