Nipawin Saskatchewan
The Old Nipawin Bridge
Loading
The 1908' span of the iconic old Nipawin Bridge rises high above the Saskatchewan River. Built in 1928 at a cost of $1.5 million dollars, the crooked old bridge served to conquer the Saskatchewan River gorge and open all points beyond to trade and settlement.

Prior to the bridge, early settlers crossed the river on a cable-guided Ferry which had only just replaced the more historic basket on a zip-line the year before.

ENJOY THE VIEW

Enjoy spectacular views of the river gorge as you drive across the one way bridge, controlled by a timed traffic light on either side of the bridge. To the the south, you can see the Dam off in the distance and to the north the forest-lined river winds out of view - a spectacular sight in the fall!

EN' ROUTE TO THE HYDRO ELECTRIC DAM
You're almost there! After your visit to the bridge, why not make your way to the Francois Finley Hydro Electric Dam and the Vista Point Observation Terrace!
