Moose Jaw, SK – The City of Moose Jaw advises residents to exercise caution near the Westheath joint-use school construction site near Wellington Drive.

Due to the size of the project, contractors are using multiple pieces of large equipment and bringing in high volumes of materials to the work zone.

To allow for completion of sewer and water connections at the site by the City’s contractor for the newly created housing lots, the City has coordinated the removal of the playground structure and outdoor rink. The play structure was nearing the end of its life expectancy, its removal was included in the 2021 Westheath Concept Plan.

Two new play structures will be installed at the school site, which both are expected to be ready for public use in the fall of 2025. The City is also working with the school divisions on installing a new outdoor rink on the site as well.

The City is also advising of a separate concrete project across a number of locations throughout Wellington Place and Everton Crescent over the next two weeks, weather permitting.

The City reminds drivers to obey all temporary traffic signs and asks residents keep a safe distance from heavy equipment at all times. No more #NotoriouslyCloseCalls.

If you require further information on the replacement/relocation of the playground structure or outdoor rink, please contact the Parks and Recreation Department at City Hall at 306.694.4447. Any other inquiries can be submitted through the ‘Report an Issue’ function on the free City of Moose Jaw app.
