A 30-minute drive south of Saskatoon, Pike Lake Provincial Park is situated along the west shore of Pike Lake. Pike Lake is a shallow body of water that's called an "oxbow" — it's a loop of the South Saskatchewan River that became cut off from the main channel.
A barrier-free interpretive trail along Pike Lake’s shoreline features observation decks that extend over the water as you may get a close-up view of aquatic life and waterfowl. A 1.5-km nature trail that begins at the interpretive centre, meanwhile, provides a fine opportunity to experience the surprisingly diverse ecosystems contained within this small park. An additional interpretive trail takes you from swamp to sand dunes.
The park has two beaches, an outdoor pool with a waterslide, a ball diamond, playgrounds, mini-golf and paddle boat and canoe rentals.
