• SFFP&Z Designated A National Historic Site!

    You'll want to know that the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo site celebrated its 100 year anniversary in 2013 and has been designated a National Historic Site. The Forestry Farm, in its 55 years as a working nursery station, shipped out 147 million trees for shelterbelts and reforestation in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

    An adult Grizzly bear can attain speeds of up to 60km/hr. However, they have never been clocked at over 30km/hr in Saskatoon school zones!
