Wanuskewin Heritage Park near Saskatoon is getting a helping hand from the provincial government.


The government has announced it is providing $2.5 million to the national and provincial heritage property site under the province’s new Building Communities Program.


Wanuskewin is planning a significant expansion in the near future.


Gamble says the money will take care of the first two phases of development — which will see the addition of a restaurant, a vignette gallery, a temporary gallery, a new gift shop, a classroom performance studio and an archaeology lab.


The final phase will feature the construction of a new permanent gallery and the introduction of a herd of bison on nearby land.
