For a newer "state of the art" facility it's already getting run down and shabby looking; especially areas of the women's locker room. Mold and rust are visible and the shower heads are the worst! Thin little streams of water shooting in every direction making it almost impossible to rinse the shampoo out of your hair. Also, I've swam at... More

Although this facility has a lot going for it, in spite of the fact that it's looking a bit shabby less than 5 years after being built (rusty fittings and black mould, anyone), it's frustrating to use, as least for lap swimmers The people in charge of scheduling treat the very customers who want to use it most, the worst....

Pay your admission and go swimming, watersliding, diving, hottubbing, or make use of the track upstairs. We needed an evening activity to keep 31 students busy - this was perfect and the lifeguards were absolutely excellent.

This building offers many amenities all under one roof. There is a gym, meeting rooms, family pool, and competitive pool. There is also good spectator seating for viewing competitions. A nice place to have a sporting venue.

When The City of Saskatoon said they were building a new indoor "water park" I was expecting something actually fun and interesting that might bring tourists in from surrounding cities, but no! The shaw center in good for small children but anyone over 10 would find it very boring. the water slide is like 30 feet long, and the pool... More

This is a very nicely designed aquatic facility. Nice large training pool with a separate pool for other aquatics, a small kiddie pool and a hot tub. Upper area has a track and gym. There seemed to be a lot of other space which I assume was used for meetings, etc. The centre is attached to a catholic school, a... More

I use the Shaw Centre whenever I come to Saskatoon. It's close by and has the equipment I am familiar with. I am able to use the facility in the off-hours (10 am) so I'm usually able to get on a bike or treadmill. There are not many treadmills, bikes or elipticals, so you would be lucky to get on... More

Great pool facility but had terrible air quality once there were a lot of people there. It would be fine if the swim meet didn't have over 200 swimmers.

Temperature of the pool area is very cool and we find we're always chilled with our kids after about half an hour of swimming. Seems to deter us when we are deciding which Leisure Pool to go to - we usually choose the Lawson Pool. Also, the new Shaw Center Pool area is very uncreative in it's decor, paint colors,... More
