Nice set!

How big are the beaches on the river?

And I wish my city had funky bike racks like these;

Nice thread! Other than the chateau style building, Saskatoon and Minnesota seem to be drawn from almost the exact same architectural palette. It is almost eerie.

I'd love to have a house like that. What kind of architecture is that?
Also I would assume that in Saskatoon houses would be very cheap?

Saskatoon house prices are about average with the rest of Canada but well above historical averages for the city itself due to the boom of the last 6 years which is still going at a steady pace.

Fascinating tour and city! Saskatoon looks very nice and green by Summer. The contrast between Summer and Winter there is very high. I love those kind of cities.

By the way, many houses are spectacular. I would love living there.

Thanks for sharing and greetings from Madrid, Spain.

My thoughts exactly! The houses that are pictured look exactly like Minneapolis or St Paul homes.
Nice tour! Winter cities really come alive in the summer!

Saskatoon beaches can vary in size depending how high the river is varying from Spring to Fall and what part of river you choose to go too..
If you want km or more of expansive sand bars in the river for a beach, just 5 or 10 kms south of the city is a good place to go..

Nice pictures. the first one reminds me a little bit of Buffalo.

I always wonder and am amazed at how people in northern cities enjoy their short summers and warm seasons.

How is the sand at these river beaches? Is it sandy and granular, or is it dusty and dirty at all?

Warmer season's are definitely taken advantage of in northern continental climates, the latest i've been out to river beaches is late September & within a couple months of that there's usually snow on the ground.

The wonderful thing about river beaches is the sand is uniform powdery fine, perfect for walking in and no stones or rocks, the river insures that sand is sorted with finest sand on top, and if its too dusty it just gets blown away or forms into dunes

if you are really interested in what sand is like in Saskatchewan check out these other sandy areas of the province

It is indeed. It's the Delta Bessborough Hotel, built in the famous "chateau-style" of Canada's railway hotels by Canadian National Railway (not Canadian Pacific in this case).
