Attractions[edit]

The town is well-known locally both for being the site of a 12,000-year-old woolly mammoth discovery during road construction in 1964 (the bones of which are now on display at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum in Regina), and being the nearest community to La Reata Ranch, a working cattle ranch that doubles as a resort and allows guests to experience a real cowboy lifestyle first-hand.

Near the town of Kyle is the Clearwater Lake Regional Park. On the road to it stands one of the last few Drive-in theaters in Western Canada, which remains a very popular evening attraction for both young and old in the summer months.
