Saskatchewan Hospital Legacy Trail

Preserving over 100 years of history and dedication to Saskatchewan Mental Health

Our Project

A Century of Caring

Thousands of footsteps echoed through the halls of the Saskatchewan Hospital in over 100 years of its history.  Now those footsteps will continue through the grounds where the original Hospital once stood, among the towering trees overlooking the North Saskatchewan River valley.  The history memorialized with interpretive signs and your donation recognized on engraved bricks saved from the iconic building and smokestack that stood as a beacon for hope.

The Saskatchewan Hospital Legacy Trail

The Saskatchewan Hospital Legacy Trail will include a plaza monument constructed from the patterned bricks from the top of the smokestack.  A paved trail will guide you past interpretive pedestals that share the history of the original Hospital.  You’ll wander through flower bed filled with healing plants and bee and butterfly attracting flowers and end at a courtyard adjacent to the Chapel, the only remaining building on the site.

Every Brick tells a story...
