Kids of all ages, and perhaps a parent or two, will be excited exploring the newly refurbished Kinsmen Park in Saskatoon. 

For the past two years, the park has been closed as drastic changes were made to various structures and the overall layout of the park. The PotashCorp Playland features a water park, zip-line and a playground looks like it was inspired by Dr. Seuss books. 

Fans of the old park will be happy to see a shiny new train and carousel are featured attractions.

But the biggest, and tallest, attraction is the Ferris wheel. At 20 meters high, the wheel offers a beautiful view of the city overlooking the river for its 64 occupants. 

Rides will operate from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. CST from Monday to Saturday and noon until 8 p.m. CST on Sundays.

Officials say the park is slated to close on Labour Day, but that date might be extended.
