About this community

Originally christened "Bonnington" by its early settlers, Kenaston is a rural village nestled 83 kilometers south of Saskatoon in Saskatchewan. Home to approximately 282 hard-working residents, Kenaston is celebrated for its vibrant history and picturesque prairie landscapes, offering an idyllic setting for families, with homes averaging just over $247,000.

Conveniently located at the junction of Highway 11 (Louis Riel Trail) and Highway 15, with close proximity to Highway 19, Kenaston enjoys a scenic locale amidst the rolling Allan Hills, flanked by Danielson Provincial Park and Blackstrap Provincial Park.

Following Saskatchewan's establishment as a province in late 1905, the settlement's name transitioned to "Kenaston," in honor of F. E. Kenaston, Vice President of the Saskatchewan Valley Land Company. While the railroad reached Bonnington in late 1889, permanent residency didn't take hold until 1902, spurred by the burgeoning needs of settlers.

As businesses flourished, Kenaston evolved, achieving village status on July 18, 1910. The Kenaston School, welcoming its inaugural fourteen pupils in August 1905 under the Bonnington moniker, stands as a testament to the community's early educational endeavors. Concurrently, the establishment of the first store in 1903, followed by the post office and hotel in 1904, further fueled Kenaston's growth trajectory.

In 2021, Kenaston boasted a population of 292 inhabitants, residing in 130 of its 153 total private dwellings, embodying its enduring allure as a cherished Saskatchewan community.
