Somba K'e Park

On the shores of Frame Lake and in the shadow of City Hall, this grassy park is Yellowknife's favourite gathering place. The plaza is a hub of activity all year-round, hosting free events like the Yellowknife Farmers’ Market in the summer and an amazing display of holiday lights come winter. 

Musical performances are common at the waterfront amphitheatre, and it’s here you can take part in the grand Canada Day and Indigenous People’s Day celebrations. Stop off for a picnic, or just take in the awe inspiring drum-dance sculpture , "'United in Celebration" by renowned Artist Francois Thibault. The Prince of Wales museum and NWT Legislature are a short stroll across the water along the Frame Lake Trail.

Whatever the event, Somba K’e offers a beautiful backdrop to life in Yellowknife.
