Gravelbourg is a small, historically francophone town found in south central Saskatchewan. It is located within a well-trafficked corridor and is roughly 110 kms from Moose Jaw, Swift Current, and the United States border.
The region served as a path for First Nations peoples many years ago, and was also integrated into the Redcoat Trail of the 19th century. Gravelbourg is now a key link on the 21st century Trans Canada Trail.
