Attractions

Constructed in 1966, Senator Sid Buckwold Bridge is what connects the eastern and western banks of the South Saskatchewan River. The bridge is made of concrete with its foundations being arched, giving the structure more stability. The bridge was a working component of the Idylwyld Freeway, functioning as a railway bridge during the late 1800s. Maintenance issues forced it to be rebuilt as a bridge for vehicles only. The bridge is named in remembrance of Sidney Buckwold who was an instrumental figure in making sure that the project was a success.
