Shaw Centre

Children love the water sprayers, floating around the rapids and watching the colourful water buckets fill and tip. The waterslide is fun for all with a shallow exit that is perfect for little ones. Walkers, joggers, runners and strollers are welcome on the Hamm Walking Track. The Hamm Fitness Centre overlooks the pool and offers excellent variety for your workout. Weight machines, free weights and exercise machines include treadmills, ellipticals, rowing and cycling. The Shaw Centre also offers a variety of aquatic and dryland fitness classes. Check the schedule - you may catch a world-class aquatic event in the competitive pool!

Spotlight on Shaw Centre

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 outlines the benefits and key factors involved in creating this successful partnership.
