Wascana Centre Adds Two Permanent Outdoor Fitness Stations

Released on October 29, 2021

The Provincial Capital Commission (PCC) is pleased to announce the addition of two permanent, outdoor fitness stations to the park. The first station is located beside the Wascana Skate Plaza with Candy Cane Park located across the street, and the second is on the north side of the Wascana Rehabilitation Centre. The fitness stations will contribute to the health and wellness of park-goers, in one of the largest urban parks in North America.

“The outdoor fitness equipment stations are significant additions to Wascana Centre that will provide new, free opportunities for health and wellness in the heart of our capital city,” Minister Responsible for the Provincial Capital Commission Don McMorris said. “These stations will enhance the growth of Wascana Centre, a dynamic and inviting space that brings in hundreds of thousands of visitors from Saskatchewan and beyond every year.”

The stations include up to nine pieces of equipment that use the weight and resistance of the user as their primary “motor”.

Notably, the public will find:

Wascana Skate Plaza/Candy Cane Park

  • Healthbeat plyometrics
  • Healthbeat assisted rowing and push-up
  • Fitcore extreme rope climb
  • Healthbeat cardio stepper
  • Fitcore extreme over-under bars
  • Fitcore extreme wheel bridge
  • Healthbeat chest and back press
  • Healthbeat parallel bars
  • Healthbeat pull-up and dip
  • Healthbeat ab crunch and leg lift

 

Wascana Rehabilitation Centre (to be completed Spring 2022)

  • Healthbeat assisted rowing and push up
  • Fitcore extreme rope climb
  • Fitcore extreme angled balance beam
  • Fitcore extreme peg bridge
  • Healthbeat elliptical
  • Healthbeat chest and back press
  • Healthbeat parallel bars
  • Healthbeat ab crunch and leg lift
  • Healthbeat pull-up and dip

 

 

The stations were constructed over the past month and include rubberized surfaces for increased accessibility. The Skate Plaza/Candy Cane Park location is now open to the public, while final surfacing work at the Wascana Rehabilitation Centre location will be completed this spring. The two stations represent a $200,000 investment from the Provincial Capital Commission.

“Wascana Centre belongs to everyone and that means making accessibility a priority,” PCC Chief Executive Officer Monique Goffinet Miller said. “That was a key value when designing these stations, and the same goes for the new rubberized surface we installed in our Candy Cane Park, and the accessibility upgrades to the barbecue and picnic locations throughout our park this year.”

Park-goers are encouraged to bring disinfectant wipes or hand sanitizer to maximize their safe use of the equipment.
