The Village of Binscarth is situated along the Yellowhead Highway (Hwy16), about 12km, from the Saskatchewan border. Gigantic spruce
trees enhance this small village, located in the heart of an agriculture
district. Two large terminal elevators are on the north and south side
of town creating a picturesque view.
The village supports churches, a library, a nine hole golf course, large
museum, K - 8 school, skating and curling rinks, drop in center, large
community center & theatre, two seniors housing facilities, a recycling
program and several businesses. There are also a variety of clubs, lodges and other organized
committees within the village.
Summer activities expand to our Park & Pool, located 2 kms south of the village in the Silver
Creek Valley. The largest outdoor pool along Hwy 16 is located in this scenic park, which also
has an interesting hiking trail, 38 serviced sites, modern concession and washrooms, horseshoe
pits, mini golf and beach volleyball.
Several of the community homes date back to the early 1900's with
many modern ones intermixed. The residents have a lot of community
spirit and take a great deal of pride in their property.

and spirit, having been awarded the honour of "Best Place To Raise
A Family" by Canadian Living Magazine - 1999 Binscarth is also very
