When winter sets in, residents enjoy activities such as skating, curling, hockey and cross country skiing.

The Gallagher Centre (above right) is one of the finest community recreation centers in Saskatchewan with amenities that include a curling rink, hockey arena and convention center. The Water Park is a great place to cool off on a hot summer day with a 25-metre instructional pool, whirlpool, lazy river, water slide and much more.
