Buffalo Pound Provincial Park is a Saskatchewan Provincial Park located in southern Saskatchewan about 25 km northeast of the city of Moose Jaw.

The park centres on Buffalo Pound Lake, a prairie lake formed from glaciation about 10,000 years ago.[1] Seasonal recreation activities include swimming (two public beaches and a pool), camping, fishing, mini-golf, biking, hiking, and access to the Trans-Canada Trail. The park also features a captive herd of bison, along with the Nicolle Flats Marsh where a variety of wildlife can be observed. There is also a trout pond, known as Buffalo Pond, which is stocked with rainbow trout, brown trout and tiger trout. Highway 202 and Highway 301 intersect near the park.
