Steam swirls in a hypnotic dance just above the water’s surface. Silhouettes glide through the warm pool as morning sunlight fills the air. And audible exhales roll melodically from the bathers who come to take in a water yoga class in the natural wonder that helped put Moose Jaw on the map.
Officially, it’s the largest therapeutic geo-thermal mineral water indoor/outdoor rooftop pool in Canada. This gem, sparkling among the wheat fields of Saskatchewan, is set in the Temple Gardens Mineral Spa Resort, recently named among the Top 10 Best Spas in the World for Mineral Springs.
Unofficially, it’s a healing haven for weary muscles and sore joints of visitors from around the world. Repeat guests eagerly attest to the water’s health benefits. The geothermal mineral-rich pools, drawn from an ancient sea bed lying deep below the city’s surface, are said to relax muscles, ease joint pain, hydrate skin, and help detoxify the body’s lymphatic system. And now visitors can enjoy a Senior’s Health Getaway packed with aquatic activities to relieve pain and improve flexibility at an incredibly affordable price.
It is not unusual to see the resort’s hallways filled with a sea of comfy, white-robed patrons coming and going from the mineral pools. They ease into the 39C-degree waters inside and float their way outside through the connecting waterway where treetop views of the adjacent park await. Guests are often overheard boasting about ‘taking the waters’ in the crisp, fresh air or under a star-studded sky… even when snow covers the ground.
Fortuitous chemistry is only part of the therapeutic effect of Temple Gardens Mineral Spa Resort. A world-class spa treatment facility and beautifully appointed guestrooms also draw visitors year-round to this 4 ½-star luxury resort to relax and get away from it all.
The new Senior’s Health Getaway Package from $129 per night includes an overnight stay, breakfast for two, free parking, free participation in the Arthritis Society Aquatic Program (Tuesday and Thursday mornings) and/or Water Yoga (Monday and Friday mornings, Sunday evenings), and of course access to the Geo-Thermal Mineral Water Pool. Catering to early risers, the mineral pools and restaurants open early. Even the swimsuits on sale in the resort’s gift shop include a large selection of one-piece and figure-flattering styles.
Temple Gardens Mineral Spa Resort is located in the heart of downtown Moose Jaw. Direct flights from most major Canadian cities will bring you to Regina, an easy 40-minute drive from Moose Jaw. From Saskatoon, Moose Jaw is 225 km south.
If you go, be sure to pack comfortable walking shoes for exploring Moose Jaw’s rich historic architecture. This small prairie town has the highest number of tourist attractions per capita in Canada, and most are within walking distance of the resort’s front doors. Rejuvenate in the healing waters of Temple Gardens then set off for adventure!
