We look forward to seeing you this summer!
Debrief after a day in the park or enjoy a coffee break during your work day. Local residents as well as visitors enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of our coffee bar with a cup of superbly brewed espresso or specialty coffee or tea and homemade treats. (Ask about cinnamon buns, gluten-free options, and breakfast bagels!)
Our cafe is also part of the gift store and bookshop. Browse our cherry-picked selection of books of regional interest, and locally or regionally crafted items. Something for everyone, and every age.
We use quality, fair-trade, shade-grown Kicking Horse coffee, which is prepared to the highest standard — and we know how to brew a proper cup of tea.
Large groups (5+) are encouraged to contact the cafe staff in advance to allow us to serve you better. Please call 306 298-4910.
Internet access is available.
We couldn’t maintain and grow every year without our committed summer staff, so please drop by and say hello.
Whether you are a resident or a visitor we have an array of crafts, many of which are locally made to a high standard, and other fun and interesting items for yourself or someone you know. Maps, and other park-related items and souvenirs are also available. There is something for everyone — all interests and all ages.
You know that Grasslands is a designated Dark Sky preserve, don’t you? Val Marie has installed night-sky friendly lighting so night-sky views can be appreciated right in the village. To really appreciate the night, see our new Dark Sky charts and tools!
We carry an excellent and varied selection of specialized books on local culture, ecology, and history that are not easily found elsewhere — including the best fiction relating to the area. Local authors are represented. Books for people of all ages.
