Kenaston is only 45 minutes from Saskatoon, on the Louis Riel Trail (Highway #11), which is a major and twinned highway between Saskatoon and Regina. We are also at the junction of Hwy#15 which runs between Outlook and Watrous.
Originally called Bonnington Springs by the early settlers, Kenaston was renamed in 1905 to celebrate Saskatchewan's admittance to Canada. At that time the area was settled predominatelly by Croatian, Slovak and Scandinavian farmers giving us a proud history as a hard working and creative community. We appreciate and value the rural way of life and our motto "Heritage, Spirit, Vision" speaks to the character of our residents. See our History Page.
We are small but we do not think small. Our Lion's Club holds claim to Super Draft, one of the largest hockey drafts in North America. Super Draft is responsible for funding several projects including Kenaston Place, a facility second to none in rural Saskatchewan. Check out the link for rental information.
Kenaston is well known for its community spirit. Volunteers maintain a wellness clinic, social center for seniors and annual Dinner Theatre, which performs to 475 over two nights. Our hockey arena comes alive when our home team, The Kenaston Blizzards, take to the ice. All winter long the arena is a focal point of volunteer efforts by a large number of area families.
The Kenaston and District Chamber of Commerce, a strong and vital organization, has a vision and mission that encourages the re-vitalization of rural Saskatchewan.
The Village of Kenaston is actively promoting Kenaston to outside businesses and industry. If you would like a rural location for your company please contact the Kenaston Village Office to discuss your requirements.
Our community boasts of a cafe, antique store, beverage room and grill, post office, credit Union, retail co-op, auto repair shop, convenience store, bed & breakfasts, service stations, and much more. We are pleased to have our three grain elevators (one being the first steel elevator in Western Canada) still adorning the skyline. All are now independently owned by farmers and have been developed into business ventures.
Our Campground, "Bonnington Springs", is a well maintained and provides hot shower facilities for the weary traveler. A walking trail begins at this "oasis" and takes you through some of our prairie flora, a walk in the country, or through our village.
