A place to nurture the soul
The gardens at the Innovation Place - Saskatoon Research Park provide a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere, allowing you enjoy being outside.

Innovation Place was established in 1980 and the research park is affiliated with the University of Saskatchewan. Other Innovation Place locations are Regina and Prince Albert. The Saskatoon location sits on 80 acres of land next to the University of Saskatchewan. The research park complements the university's research interests in agriculture, information technology, environmental and life sciences. In 2012, the Innovation Place research parks contributed $1.1 billion dollars to the provincial economy.

The gardens are a popular place for photography as the various benches, trees, flowers, and pond provide substantial opportunities for the shutter bug.
