Picturesque, charming, and filled with so many great outdoor activities to enjoy, Swift Current has everything you need to have a fun and relaxing staycation. And what better way to socially distance and take advantage of our outdoor amenities than with a hike or nature walk? This Saskatchewan town and its surrounding areas are filled with gorgeous and diverse terrain that offer sweeping views and wildlife viewing opportunities. Keep reading for our top picks.
Hike, walk, run, or even bike along nearly 20 kilometres of paved terrain on the Chinook Parkway. Right on the banks of the Swift Current Creek and winding through a variety of community parks, the parkway also features prairie grasses, wildflowers (including prickly pear cactus and wild licorice), and plenty of wildlife. Keep your eyes peeled for beavers, deer, and yellow-headed blackbirds.
If you’re looking for sweeping valley views and sandy beaches, make sure to visit Lac Pelletier Regional Park. Just 30 minutes south of Swift Current, it’s the perfect spot for a leisurely stroll. Lac Pelletier is a natural spring-fed lake and also offers great opportunities for boating and fishing. And be sure to stay for a breathtaking sunset!
Tucked in the valley amongst pine trees, poplars, and sand caves, Pine Cree Regional Park is perfect for exploring. It also has a number of hiking trails where you’ll be able to see prairie grasslands, orchid beds, and wildflowers—and where you most certainly will run into wildlife, like great-horned owls, moose, white-tail deer, and mountain bluebirds.
