Living In Wawota

“People in small towns, much more than in cities, share a destiny.”

~Richard Russo

Education & Childcare

Raising children in a small town has many benefits, one of which being education and childcare – smaller schools and daycares mean a more personalized and hands-on learning experience. This doesn’t mean that class sizes in Wawota are scarce; in fact, they continue to grow as more people recognize the benefits of having children in a small community. You can learn more about these organizations, including contact  info here !  

Parks & Nature

Nature lovers will appreciate the trails through Pipestone Creek which has many access points along the east side of town. The trails can be enjoyed year round, with many people snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and walking even when the snow hits.

Also in town is Centennial Park, which features a gazebo, outdoor kitchen and picnic facilities, public washrooms and showers, and children’s splash park and playground. The park connects to our walking path which leads to the skateboard park and another children’s playground.
