“Super Family Fun!”
Reviewed 11 February 2012

The Shaw centre is an excellent family centered pool and fitness facility. I take my boys there whenever we travel to visit Saskatoon. For under $20, we have an entire afternoon of fun. This facility has a kiddie pool, a slow moving river attached to a medium depth pool, and a full sized pool that is about 5 feet deep, no diving and no diving boards on the fun side ( but they have diving boards on the Olympic/competitive swim pool which is right beside the family centered pool area.). They also have a fun waterside that ends in a trough so no 'drop off' and an adult only hot tub where you can pretend to get away from the children for a while, while still being able to view them. I highly recommend the Saskatoon Shaw centre if you have children who enjoy swimming!

“Nice pool, but a bit cold”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

The gym was wonderful, personal TVs on each cardio equipment, just bring headphones. The pool is wonderful, although a bit cool. (My 2 year old was shivering), so we found ourselves in the family hot tub most of the time. The waterslide is great for kids though, you land in shallow water, not in a deep pool where you can go under the water.

“Snack and grill (non-alcoholic)”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

This is a fast food service counter in Shaw community center. A complex that is in between a public and a separate high school and attached to both with a public swimming and fitness facility that is city run and owned. The snack bar management made the highest bid for this and a couple of other city owned facility snack bars. More of a snack bar that serves up burgers etc. than a restaurant.
