The quaint town of Swift Current, Saskatchewan, is more than a Trans-Canada highway stop. It's the fifth-largest city in Saskatchewan and is home to 16,000 people, including some notable professional athletes. Although summer plans are on pause, the current restrictions on travel offer a unique opportunity to rediscover Swift Current with fresh eyes. 

 

If you're in Swift Current this summer, you must check out these Top 3 Underrated Spots. 

 

Black Bridge Brewery 

 

Black Bridge Brewery's award-winning hand-crafted beers put the Saskatchewan beer scene on the map. Since its creation in 2014, the brewery proudly represents its South Saskatchewan roots. In fact, the name 'Black Bridge' pays homage to the iconic bridge that is surrounded by folklore among its residents. Patrons can visit the Black Bridge Brewery taproom to enjoy sampler flights or fill growlers with their favourite beer. Its Folklore Imperial Stout and Milk Stout won gold and silver at the Canadian Brewing Awards. 

 

Visit the taproom for a night of brews and with best friends and family. Contact Black Bridge Brewery before visiting for information on COVID-19 policies. 

 

Riverside Park 

 

Although Riverside Park is a well-known attraction to locals and a typical first-stop for tourists, it deserves a spot on this list because many overlook its impressive scale. Riverside Park has it all. It's the largest park in Swift Current, with six tennis courts, a soccer/football field, 400-meter oval track, three pickleball courts, an ice cream shack, and a splash pad. People can cool off, enjoy a picnic under a tree, or engage in athletics. 

 

Market Square 

 

You can find farmer's markets everywhere. But, no market brings a town to life like Market Square in Swift Current. Luckily, the beloved Market Square has re-opened as of August 22. This annual open-air farmer's market takes place in the heart of downtown and often features crafts, kid-friendly activities, and live performances. Residents look forward to Saturdays at the Market Square to enjoy fun activities and the opportunity to purchase affordable fresh fruit & vegetables.
