COVID-19 Response: Leisure Centres and Recreation Programs
Get back to what you love! Lakewood Civic Centre and Shaw Centre have now re-opened with limited drop-in programs in full compliance with the guidelines and restrictions as required by the Chief Medical Health Officer and regulated under the Government of Saskatchewan’s Re-open Saskatchewan plan.

Lakewood Civic Centre
- Pool – NOW OPEN!
The re-opening schedule for the remaining Leisure Centres (Cosmo Civic Centre, Harry Bailey Aquatic Centre, Lawson Civic Centre and the Saskatoon Field House) will be announced in August.
The drop-in program schedule for each facility is available on Leisure Online under the “Book a Visit” option. At this time, programs offered include the following, depending on the facility:
- Public, Lane and Parent & Tot swimming
- Aqua Motion and Self-Directed Aqua Walk
- Fitness & Weight Room/Walking Track access at Shaw Centre only
To keep the public and our staff as safe as possible and reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission at Leisure Centres, drop-in programs are offered in timed sessions due to capacity limits and to allow for necessary physical distancing. Sessions include admission and exit times and there are breaks between sessions to allow for the cleaning and sanitization of common areas.
