Waskesiu Foundation - Enhancing the Waskesiu Experience
It's not too late to donate! Donations are still being accepted to enhance the Waskesiu and Prince Albert National Park themes in the mini-golf course. Plus there's a whole lot more on the Waskesiu Recreation Renewalplan including adding a sport court, fitness park, a picnic shelter, tree carvings and improved pathways with benches. If you haven't yet supported, we'd gladly take a little 'green' out of your wallet!
Our gallery has photos of construction progress.
The wheels started turning for site preparation in September and continued until the snow came. The following has been completed as of fall 2017:

A charitable organization supporting recreational, social, cultural and environmental activities that enhance the Waskesiu experience
It's supported by Waskesiu Foundation, Waskesiu Recreation Association, Waskesiu Community Council, Waskesiu Chamber of Commerce, and Parks Canada Agency
A portion of revenues will be donated to the Waskesiu Foundation, and the balance will be used to fund improved recreational programs and facilities in Waskesiu.
Renewing and improving Waskesiu's recreation facilities is an integral part of Waskesiu community's "Vision 2020 and Beyond"
The design of the mini-golf course reflects natural, historic and cultural themes, and the iconic treasures we know and love in and around Waskesiu and Prince Albert National Park. Imagine stepping up to hole #1 and having to deal with a recognizable rise and a Lobstick tree in the middle! Or navigating your ball around a family of loons or rail cart, or recreated natural challenges like the Waskesiu River riffle, King Island, the Bagwa-Lily-Clare canoe route or water, snow, beaches and beaver dams.
It's a hole in one! Thanks so much to each and every donor who answered the fundraising call 'fore' mini-golf. Thanks to you, $466,416.38 in cash and pledges was received by August 31. The major components have been manufactured and are in Waskesiu. Site preparation began this fall and the opening is planned for summer 2018. See some construction updates and photos below. Check out our gallery for more photos. You've helped make this tremendous recreational opportunity a reality! Huge thanks!
