Moose Jaw Attractions Off the Beaten Path

There is no shortage of activities to occupy your time during a visit to Moose Jaw, Saskatoon. Whether you’re looking for an outdoor activity, want to enjoy some of our wildlife, or are interested in learning more about our city’s long history, there are plenty of attractions to suit anyone’s interests. Here are three attractions off the beaten path that you may want to try.


Bootlegging Tunnels

During Prohibition in the 1920s, Moose Jaw was a hub for bootleggers who used the city’s rail connections to travel to the United States. Today, visitors can explore the tunnels underneath Moose Jaw, learn the history of the mob boss Al Capone’s operation, how the police at that time supported the rum trade, and the struggle of Chinese immigrants during that period.


Burrowing Owl Interpretive Centre

If you enjoy wildlife, you won’t want to miss the Burrowing Owl Interpretive Center, created to promote the conservation of our endangered Burrowing Owl. Enjoy watching the owls in their outdoor enclosures and also get the chance to see gophers, coyotes, jackrabbits, and other wildlife.


Wakamow Valley

If you want to enjoy some time in the great outdoors, visit Wakamow Valley, a natural park with over 20 km of trails. It’s an area you can enjoy during every season, whether you want to go canoeing in the summer or snowshoeing in the winter.

This is just a brief glimpse of the many attractions that visitors can experience when they visit Moose Jaw and what makes the area so special. We hope you have the opportunity to enjoy a number of them during your time in our city.
