Come explore our network of paths and trails and see first-hand the beauty that the land of living skies has to offer.
Our community lost a trailblazer yesterday when Cathy Watts passed away. Cathy was a long-time cycling enthusiast and trail advocate. When the concept of the Trans Canada Trail was proposed, Cathy formed the Parkland TCT Group to assist with the development of the trail in the Saskatoon area. She was asked to be part of the TCT advisory committee that the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association established to coordinate the development of Saskatchewan’s portion of the trail. This committee evolved into the Saskatchewan Trails Association.
Cathy was a long-time board member of our association and served as President from 2010-14. One of her highlights as President was reaching an agreement with the TCT for the STA to serve as the project manager for the TCT in this province. For years, she wrote articles on the benefits of trails in the SPRA newsletter and hosted board meetings in her living room. Everyone enjoyed her delicious cooking and break time snacks. Cathy later served on the Saskatchewan TCT Committee and became chair of Saskatoon Cycles. She continued to remain involved in the STA and recently organized a fundraising event at Outter Limits to support the Churchill River Water Trail Legacy Project. She also helped organize a raffle to support this project.
