Location & Geography
The Town of Battleford and City of North Battleford, known as the Battlefords, are beautifully situated atop either side of the North Saskatchewan River Valley in northwest Saskatchewan. Lending additional charm to this area is the Battle River that converges with the North Saskatchewan River just south of Battleford.
Drive north on Highway #4 for 15 minutes and you're in Jackfish country, which is situated in a fertile park belt and surrounds two beautiful lakes: Jackfish and Murray. The tourism industry flourishes here in the summer months and the population increases to in excess of 5,000 people.
The Battlefords are at the crossroads for the Yellowhead Highway Route (Hwy 16) and four other highways: 4, 26, 29, and 40. Here we have everything under the sun, offering an active lifestyle and exciting attractions during every season.
