BEYOND THE TOMAHAWK
Tomahawk Park, on the west side of Cut Knife, has been home to the “World’s Largest Tomahawk” since 1971. Constructed specifically as a tourist attraction for Saskatchewan’s Homecoming ’71, the park also includes a campground, a stocked trout pond, and the Clayton McLain Memorial Museum. With shade trees, a walking path and benches, a pioneer village, and a fishing pond that doubles as a winter ice rink, our piece of the prairie is appreciated by tourists and locals alike.
Beyond the Tomahawk is the Town of Cut Knife. Established in 1912, the Town has successfully maintained its CPR rail service for the area’s agriculture producers. Cut Knife’s commercial sector is a vibrant mix of businesses, services and entrepreneurs. Employment opportunities exist in the healthcare field at the Cut Knife Health Complex, in education at the K-12 community school, in agriculture, retail and hospitality, and more. Cut Knife is about one half hour’s drive from North Battleford to the east, Unity to the south, and just over an hour to Lloydminster in the northwest.
Almost 600 residents – and growing – call Cut Knife home. Housing options range from heritage houses in mature neighbourhoods to serviced lots in the newest subdivision, and also include subsidized housing for seniors and families. Recreational choices are varied like bowling at Cut Knife Country Lanes, skating and hockey at the Civic Centre, and extra-curricular and team sports for youth through Cut Knife Community School. Nearby is Atton’s Lake Regional Park for swimming, golfing, and ball tournaments, and Table Mountain Regional Park for skiing and boarding.
