At long last, a Yorkton marker

September 11, 2007 | 8 comments

The official opening of the Yorkton Trans Canada Trail pavilion will be held on Wednesday, September 19th at noon. You don’t have to bring your lunch because the Scouts will be on hand, selling hot dogs and drinks. So, head on over to Logan Green Park at the south end of Tupper next Wednesday. Check out your inscription. Have a hot dog.

Coming soon…your name or message!


  • Melville Sask was officially recognized last fall as a Transcanada Trail site. we asked for trail markers which were said to be available but have never received can we get some? our trail is very popular winter and summer and covers several areas in the city. I lobbied for its completion for some 20? years and last July 2006 had the privilege to MC the opening ceremony
    2008 is our city’s centennail; having a well marked trail would add to our “into the next century” events. thanks cary piller box 628 melville soa2po (306) 728-3952 we will be at Yorkton July 19 to find our inscriptionS.

  • On behalf of the Board of Directors of Saskatchewan Trails Association I congratulate the trail community in Yorkton for putting the time and energy into acknowledging Trans Canada Trail supporters in your area. We look forward to working with your community to expand your trail network and provide people with new recreational opportunities.

  • Where is Yorkton? Saskatchewan – Ontario – Alberta??

    Sometimes the information is obvious to the writer, but it’s not obvious to everyone else ….
