*NOTICE: The Leisure Pool & Hot Tubs will be closed for maintenance until Sept. 29, 2014.*

The Shaw Centre is a state-of-the-art aquatic and fitness facility offering a new calibre of recreation, health and fitness opportunities to the residents of Saskatoon. 

The story of the Shaw Centre is unique as it came to life as part of an integrated partnership between the City of Saskatoon, Saskatoon Public Schools and Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools.  By developing a collaborative approach to combining their resources (land, building, programs and services), a fully integrated destination centre was created that includes the Shaw Centre, Tommy Douglas Collegiate, Bethlehem Catholic High School and Morris T. Cherneskey Multi-District Park. The Partnership Story (pdf)
outlines the benefits and key factors involved in creating this successful partnership.
