Other things to visit include the Peter MacKinnon Building (a National Historic Site of Canada), the campus observatory (opened on Saturday nights), a large number of gardens, and a Museum of Antiquities.

The prime location of campus along the South Saskatchewan Rivers will allow you to walk on the bike path along the river and in one of the many riverside city parks. The campus is also only a 15-20 minutes walk from downtown Saskatoon and the Broadway street area both of which harbour numerous pubs and restaurants.
