While the building is closed to the public, we are currently opened for “porchside” service (takeout) from 8:30-12 Wed-Sun.
Debrief after a day in the park or enjoy a coffee break during your work day. Local residents as well as visitors enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of our coffee bar with a cup of superbly brewed espresso or specialty coffee or tea. Browse our hand-picked selection of books, Grasslands-themed gifts and locally or regionally crafted items. Internet access is available.
Groups of 5 or more are encouraged to contact the staff in advance to allow us to serve you better. Please call 306-298-4910.
We couldn’t maintain and grow every year without our committed summer staff, so please drop by and say hello.
We carry an excellent and varied selection of specialized books on local culture, ecology, and history that are not easily found elsewhere — including the best fiction relating to the area. Local authors are represented.
Whether you are a resident or a visitor we have an array of crafts, many of which are locally made to a high standard, and other fun and interesting items for yourself or someone you know. Maps, and other park-related items and souvenirs are also available.
You know that Grasslands is a designated Dark Sky preserve, don’t you? Val Marie has installed night-sky friendly lighting so night-sky views can be appreciated right in the village. To really appreciate the night, see our Dark Sky charts and tools!
