About Radville

Radville, Saskatchewan.  A picturesque town where the whistles of trains and the line ups of grain trucks at the elevators are a thing of the past, and yet the community is steeped in heritage and culture at every turn.  Radville is a thriving community of just under 900 people located along the Long Creek in the scenic Missouri Coteau region of Southeast Saskatchewan.  Quiet, well-treed streets characterize this quaint Saskatchewan town; a tribute to the “Proud Prairie People” who built it.

About-Us-2Radville, like most Saskatchewan towns, began when the railroad came through in 1910, becoming officially incorporated as a town in 1911.  Radville is named, in part, for Conrad Paquin, whose undeveloped farm the town is built on.  Its name was created using the last letters of Mr. Paquin’s first name and the French derivative of ‘ville’ to denote the settlement.  Radville grew quickly as it became a major rail transportation hub and began to serve the homesteaders of the R.M. of Laurier #38.

Visitors to Radville always remark on the beauty of the town’s tree-lines streets.  In fact, driving into the town through the rugged Missouri Coteau from the west or south or from the north through the flat “burnout”, Radville’s verdant townscape emerges like an oasis.  This is the legacy of Jerry Bertrand, a teenager who organized a tree-planting project during the depressed and dirty years of the 1930’s.  Tragically killed in World War II, Bertrand lives on through a park dedicated to his memory.  Radville contains four parks altogether, plenty of green space for outdoor recreation.

About-Us-3

Radville has become a favorite to local sportsmen and visitors from as far away as the southern United States.  Hunters and fisherman return to the area year after year for the gaming opportunities that Radville offers.  Visitors at the end of a busy day may enjoy a meal at one of Radville’s fine restaurants or retire to a quiet campsite at the Radville Laurier Regional Park.

All of the town’s needs, and those of the surrounding farming communities are served by Radville’s businesses and amenities.  The combination of practical, recreation and health facilities means residents of Radville and area enjoy a very high quality of life.  The community boasts a new health care facility, with long-term care, an EMT ambulance service and pharmacy.  The town has two schools serving the needs of students from Kindergarten through to Grade 12.  Recreation facilities including a curling rink, skating rink, ball diamonds, a new swimming pool with a waterslide and splash toys, nine hole golf course and programs that appeal to all ages.  Radville’s Catholic and Protestant churches round out a full range of services available in a pleasing rural setting.  An RCMP detachment is also headquartered in Radville.

Radville’s community lives up to its motto “Proud Prairie People”, and this pride of place is evident everywhere one looks in this beautiful town.  Radville is an oasis on the prairie.  Come, take a walk along the wide, tree shaded streets.  Listen to a ghost story or two, munch on some popcorn from Eva’s Popcorn Stand, smell the lilacs in Bertrand Park, snap a photo by the train station, and take in the view.  There isn’t one like it anywhere else in Saskatchewan, or the world.
