Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo reaches 100th birthday

SASKATOON – The Forestry Farm Park and Zoo in Saskatoon is 100-years-old.

Originally called the Sutherland Forest Nursery Station, it was established in 1913, and was operated as a federal tree nursery until 1966.

A few years after that, the zoo was created at the park site.

Manager of the Forestry Farm, John Moran, says there are plans to celebrate the centennial throughout the year.

The site features a number of heritage buildings, a meditation garden, lots of heritage programs, and events like weddings, anniversaries, picnics and the Enchanted Forest holiday light tour.
