About SPRA

History is more than just the facts-it is about the communities, leaders and volunteers that continue to strengthen the parks and recreation sector. We work with our network to support and advocate the benefits of parks and recreation and recognize its contribution to healthy, active and inclusive leisure opportunities. 

Did you know...

  • Some of the first full-time recreation directors were employed in Saskatchewan back in the early 1940s
  • Saskatchewan has parks that have been in existence since the 1930s
  • Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association was formed in 1961 (then known as the Saskatchewan Recreation Association)

We've captured the history in two editions. Reminisce, learn and celebrate parks and recreation in Saskatchewan!
