Waskesiu Recreation Association

About Us


The Waskesiu Recreation Association (“WRA”) is a small (but mighty) Saskatchewan non-profit
organization focused on providing quality recreation and event opportunities for visitors to, and
residents of, Waskesiu.


We always need volunteers to help us – so please consider joining one of our Committees, volunteering to help out at one of our many events or – better yet – join our Board of Directors! 

 

If you would like to buy a season pass they are a great deal – and they help the WRA continue to improve recreation opportunities and facilities in Waskesiu.

Hit this link to find out more about season passes - including the benefits of buying early.


For more information please drop by to visit us at 1500 Montreal Drive, Waskesiu (next to the tennis courts), or contact us at 306-663-5410 or wrawaskesiu@gmail.com.  We would love to meet you and have you join us. 

Little Al's Mini Golf

Our fantastic, one of a kind, Waskesiu-themed mini golf course


This brand-new recreation facility is re-opening for business on the May long weekend!


Alan Vincent Hadley Logue (“Little Al”) was a natural athlete. He loved sports of every kind, including golf. Alan was well known for his love of people – sharing a laugh and bringing light to all those around him. He could be seen puttering around Waskesiu in his van  nicknamed ‘Little Al’ seeking out new adventure at every corner.

 

Alan’s journey of 22 years took an unexpected turn when he was diagnosed in May 2011 with Leukemia. Alan’s courage and optimism never left him as he faced treatment and hospitalization, though his time in this life came to an end on February 10, 2012. 

 

In honour of Alan’s incredible spirit, his love of all physical activity, and his passion for people, we were proud to open “Little AL’s Mini Golf” in July of 2018. Many thanks to the incredible tournament participants, supporters and fine folks of the Alan Vincent Hadley Logue Memorial Golf Tournament for their generosity and dedication to the Waskesiu community.
