The River Landing Riverfront Master Plan by Crosby Hanna & Associates provides a framework for the Saskatoon waterfront to use the space to its full potential. The Saskatoon riverfront has been a major node for the city since settlements in the area were first established. The access to the water provides the city with multiple economic, social, and design opportunities, along with providing a rich historic past. However, until the Master Plan was implemented, the waterfront was underutilized due to previous poor planning and design. The Riverfront Plan was used to transform the waterfront space into a cultural hub within the city, while also providing a safe and comfortable space for locals and visitors. Elements such as a Riverwalk promenade, amphitheatre, water play areas, river garden, linking rails, and a food service pavilion provide a wide range of activities while still emphasizing the heritage and history of the River Landing.
