The City of Saskatoon is pleased to announce the season extension at the new PotashCorp Playland at Kinsmen Park (945 Spadina Crescent East). Originally scheduled to close Monday, September 7, 2015, the attraction will remain open for two additional weekends in September.
“Since PotashCorp Playland opened in early August, we have had a tremendous response from the citizens of Saskatoon and visitors from near and far and want to give everyone more time to enjoy the new attraction,” says Cary Humphrey, Director of Recreation and Sport. “We have sold over 140,000 ride tickets this past month, none of which would be possible without the financial commitment from PotashCorp, Canpotex, and CP.”
Days and hours of operation for the extended season are as follows:
Saturday, September 12: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Sunday, September 13: 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Saturday, September 19: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Sunday, September 20: 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
PotashCorp Playland features a $1.025 million train provided by Canpotex and CP, as well as a larger Ferris wheel and a refurbished carousel. PotashCorp generously provided $7.5 million of the $9.5 million cost of PotashCorp Playland, which also includes a free children’s play area.
PotashCorp Playland ride tickets purchased in 2015 are valid until October 2017. Admission is $2 for a single ticket and $20 for a Play Pack (12 tickets). One ticket is required per ride, and children under two years of age ride for free when accompanied by a paying adult.
