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.

The Village of Binscarth is very proud of it's community involvement and spirit, having been awarded the honour of "Best Place To Raise A Family" by Canadian Living Magazine - 1999 Binscarth is also very proud for receiving both provincial and national recognition by winning Communities in Bloom.
