COVID-19 Response: Recreation Facility Rentals

From Leisure Centres, outdoor pools, park event space, scenic River Landing venues, sports fields and rinks, the City of Saskatoon offers individuals, groups and organizers a wide range of options. Every event has its own set of requirements and every facility has its own advantages.
Leisure Centres are equipped to offer proper social distancing for limited capacity gatherings such as meetings and training sessions. Groups interested in room rentals will be provided with the COVID-19 External Group Guidelines and Return to Play Rental Form. Completed forms are reviewed and approved by the Site Administrator to ensure groups are following the guidelines for their activity.
For more information, contact Customer Service at the Leisure Centre of your choice.
Private/School Group Rentals
Pre-season applications to rent the outdoor pools are processed during April and May. To make your reservation, call 306-975-2945. Each outdoor pool has a maximum capacity (see below), therefore rentals must book in advance.
Please note that bookings made during school hours (8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.) do not guarantee exclusive use of the pool.

Park and River Landing Event Space
Picture perfect weddings, lively team building events and festive summer festivals are just some of the events that take place at our outdoor sites. Park and River Landing event space is available free of charge for event use; however, events do not have exclusive use of the space. Events, especially smaller occasions, often end up sharing event space with the general public.
There are also many scenic venues available to book at River Landing including an amphitheatre, belvederes and a fire vessel (there is a charge to book the fire vessel). You may not fence off park space or River Landing in a manner that blocks access to the Meewasin Valley Authority (MVA) trail or that prohibits access through the site.
