St Volodymyr Park
Renters Guide Updated 2022
St Volodymyr Ukrainian Catholic Eparchial Park is a facility owned and operated by the Ukrainian
Catholic Eparchy of Saskatoon. The purpose of the park is providing a facility for the spiritual,
recreational, cultural and education benefit of the Ukrainian Catholic Community in the Eparchy of
Saskatoon. It is run by a group of dedicated volunteers from the Eparchy and supported by the Ukrainian
Over the years we have been able to share our space with many family reunions, weddings, school
groups and community organizations. Although the park space will be booked for you, it is understood
that the event does not have exclusive use of the park. Our Key holder members always have access to
the use of the park and may be using the park for recreational purposes like camping, picnics or
swimming while you are there. Every key holder member has a key to the front gate and washroom
facilities so it’s important that you keep the front gate locked after all your guests arrive and be sure to
lock the washroom facility before you leave the park at the end of your booking.
Renters are responsible for the security of their group. We recommend you keep the front gate locked to ensure no one is entering unauthorized. If you see any unusual activity in the park, please alert the rental agent. If it is of an urgent nature, please call 911. Corman Park police have access to the site and drive on to the property sometimes as well.
We believe that it is in your best interest to consult and hire a professional security company for your events that involve large groups of people or liquor consumption (even for a smaller group). This way you can focus on the enjoyment of your event and avoid any problems with intoxicated guests or unwanted visitors. Remember the park is run by volunteers and we do not employ any security staff for these purposes. Please plan accordingly for your event.
Cell Phones and Internet
Cell phone service can be a little bit spotty and we do not have WiFi, so sit back, unplug and enjoy a getaway from your device while at the park.

Instructions for cleaning the BBQ with Propane

We expect that the BBQ will be thoroughly cleaned by the renter before they leave the park.
Besides the washroom facility all buildings must be rented through the rental agent and key holders to not have access to these buildings.
Our kitchen facility is a great home base for meals during your rental. It has 2 fridges, deep freezer, stove, sink and basic cleaning supplies. Garbage cans and garbage bags are provided for you.
The kitchen hall does not provide any cooking supplies so please be prepared by bringing anything you need for food preparation and serving. We recommend that you consider packing the following:
Pots & Pans
Tea Towles and dish clothes
Napkins or paper towel
Sharp knife for cutting
Supplies for starting the camp fire (matches/lighter/paper)
Hotdog roasting sticks or bush pie devices
Hafford Hall was relocated to our park from the town of Hafford SK and is the small town community hall that you would expect. Tables and benches are provided in the hall. Tables can not be moved outside mostly because they are large and heavy and we want to avoid damage to them. There is also a small
stage and some power outlets inside. This hall would be a great location for registration, to display photos or posters, to do indoor rainyday activities like crafts or bring a projector to show a movie (public viewing license rules must be followed). The hall does not provide a projector however there is a screen installed for your convenience. The hall does have electricity but does not have any plumbing.
Washrooms and Shower Facility
There is one modern washroom and shower facility in the park located between Hafford Hall and the Swimming Pool. They have 2 toilets and 2 showers one for each men and women. The door to the washroom and shower facility is locked when not in use. Your entrance key will also open the washrooms and shower facility. The facility is used by renters and key holders. We recommend that you keep
the outdoor light on over night and keep the inside light off when not in use. Please be sure to lock the washroom and shower facility before you leave after your rental is done. You will notice many old-fashioned out houses (drop toilets) located around the site. If you have a large group or using areas that are not close to the washroom and shower facility you may choose to rent portable toilets and have them delivered to the site.
Our park has an “upstairs” top of the hill and “downstairs” bottom of the hill. You can get from upstairs to downstairs by driving or walking. Please remember to observe a 15KPH speed limit while using the road to watch out for people walking.
The Hutsal style church on the hill is a beautiful reminder of the Ukrainian Catholic faith that built the vision of the Park (established 1982). It is a beautiful landmark, so remember to snap some photos while you are there. The church is not open to regular Sunday services; it can however be rented with the permission of the Ukrainian Catholic Bishop for religious purposes. Every now and then the park board will arrange for a celebration of the Ukrainian Catholic Divine Liturgy. If this is the case you might
hear the ringing of the bells before the service begins.
Upstairs Kitchen Hall
We do have a well-equipped kitchen and hall at the top of the hill beside the church. This building can
be rented and seats about 80 people comfortably. There is no air conditioning however we do have
some fans and plenty of doors and windows to create air flow. There are no modern bathroom facilities in this area however a set of outhouses are located next to the church. You can walk from the kitchen hall to the “downstairs” using a small trail. The park also owns and maintains 2 outhouses that can be placed near the venue at your request.
We do not guarantee that sports equipment will be available however upon request we have horse shoes (which must be returned as given), soccer nets, and sometimes an assortment of balls. You may be asked to sign out the equipment to ensure it is returned in full. The site has a beach volley ball court and net near the pool, baseball diamond with bleachers, swimming pool, playground equipment, nature hikes, horse shoe pits, multipurpose sports court and a large field great for all kinds of sports. Please do not drive or park on the baseball field. Parking is limited to the spaces along the tree line near the main
camp fire pit, the field between the pool and the main road, and the camping spaces located around the
swimming pool. Please notice during wet seasons that parking on the grass may be limited. We trust all users will follow any no parking signs on the site during their visit.
There are several places perfect for setting up a tent or parking a camper. There many taps for
drinking water and deadfall can be gathered and used as firewood. Camp fires must be kept to
the provided camp fire rings and BBQ pits. Bring an axe for chopping.
There are 15 marked campsites which can be reserved in advance for a fee. Key holders are able to reserve spots two weeks before the date using the camp site rental link provided upon payment of fees.
Please remember that the park quiet time is 11PM. If your event requires a later quiet time, like a wedding, please inform your rental agent during your booking. We will ensure that any key holders who are camping are made aware of the special event and extended quiet time.
There are outlets located around the campgrounds, they are 15amps. We ask that no generators be used because they are so loud however if you wish to use an inverter generator (quieter) please feel free to do so. There are also some light posts around the camping and bathroom areas that can be turned on at the pole. This will be helpful to use when the sun goes down. If you plug in 2 campers to the same outlet you might have a breaker blow. If this happens the breaker is located next to the box beside the plug in. Please reduce your power load and reset the breaker. That means each post can host 2 campers plugged in. There are 7 posts so plug ins for up to 14 campers.

narrow so you might end up in a traffic jam so plan accordingly.

pole in the middle of the cabin area. There is also a breaker box there.
When camping at St Volodymyr Camp we recommend loads of bug spray and maybe a zapper
or citronella candles or other mosquito repelling strategies. As with any wilderness areas, you
will want to take precautions for ticks and other insects. Some years have more or less bugs,
you can consult your rental agent for what the current status is on the bug situation. There are no mirrors in the cabins, the only mirrors are in the bathroom facility.
