The Best Places to Propose in Saskatoon
If you find yourself running back to Saskatoon to make a proposal to your partner, then it’s important to plan out the perfect venue early on. Setting the tone and the right ambiance for the big event is one of the best ways to demonstrate your affection for your partner and make the moment a memorable one.
To provide you with some inspiration for some great places to take your partner for a proposal (surprise or not), here we have distilled the many options into a few solid choices that will work for any couple.
Christmas Glow Saskatoon
Fortunately for those who are planning to get engaged over the winter season, Saskatoon is proudly featuring Christmas Glow this year. This fantastic collection of Christmas light displays will be sure to amaze your partner and put them in the proper mood for a proposal. You are both sure to enjoy the abundance of food and beverage options available on site. You can also enjoy perusing the artisanal crafts and products of local vendors at stalls located throughout the area. All in all, this Christmas-themed event is a great place to take a date – and a picturesque place to propose!
Get Out into Nature
In the heart of the Prairies, Saskatoon offers many enjoyable outdoor venues that are perfect for popping the big question to your partner. This season try exploring the Meewasin Trail until you come across an ideal picturesque spot to get down on one knee.
Skating in the City
Skating rinks are great venue ideas for a romantic proposal. Balancing on skates as part of a romantic date is a great way to build up the right balance for getting down on one knee to propose! Over the winter season in Saskatoon, look for an outdoor rink at a local school or – if the weather does not look inviting – then head to the Cameco Meewasin skating rink for an indoor alternative. Either way, a skating proposal is something you will both remember for years to come!
Go For a Tobogganing Date
Once there is enough snow on the ground (which does not usually take long in the Saskatoon winter season), you can consider going for a tobogganing date as a pretext for your proposal. While you are busy having fun, you can work up the courage to ask the big question. Your date is sure to be surprised when you bring out the engagement ring at the end of the sledding session! Just be sure that you do not lose it on any of your downhill runs. Try out Optimist Hill Snow Park for a local favourite sledding venue.
Take a Road Trip
Even on a budget, Saskatoon offers a number of nearby road trip destinations that can make for great proposal locations. Assuming that the winter weather is not keeping you stuck indoors, heating up the car and heading out to a nearby resort or hiking trail is a great idea for setting the tone of your imminent proposal. Try the Elk Ridge Resort (which is usually a golfing paradise) for a quiet and private wintertime retreat. With your stay, you can enjoy access to a number of winter activities provided by the resort for free. With equipment for activities like snowshoeing, you can spend the day in the great outdoors and then pop the question over a good meal and a warm beverage in the evening. There are no better ways to spend a winter day with your partner!
Local Dining Venues
Fortunately for lovers of great food, Saskatoon offers many options for a classic dinner date proposal. For those who like to eat local and celebrate everything that the city has to offer in a culinary sense, then be sure to make some reservations for an evening at The Hollows. This local establishment features many dishes made almost entirely from local ingredients. After you are satisfied with the meal, you are sure to have the energy you will need to make your proposal truly heartfelt.
Beyond the list that we have outlined here, there are many more ideas for locations throughout Saskatoon that will work well for setting the right ambiance for a romantic proposal. Choose your favourite spot and one that is meaningful to both you and your partner for the best results!
