Valley Regional Park

The Valley Regional Park is another one of Rosthern's gems. It is one of Saskatchewan's most popular regional parks. A championship 18-hole golf course awaits the golfer in you. A campground with 65 campsites can be found throughout the beautifully-landscaped grounds. Children love the large creative playground and games area. A ball diamond, mini golf and concession are also provided.
