U of S College Quarter Recreation Plan

The University is undertaking a Recreation Plan to further develop concepts for the development of the College Quarter. The College Quarter Master Plan, adopted in 2009, sets the framework for the development of College Quarter over the coming years to create an academic and mixed-use village that will welcome both campus users and the surrounding community. A University is not only a place of learning. It also has a role to play in the social, physical and emotional well-being of the community, students, faculty and staff that call it home. The Recreation Plan for College Quarter will complement the existing development plan, creating spaces for movement, sports, play and socializing.

The College Quarter Master Plan integrates athletic fields, student amenity spaces, Griffiths Stadium, PotashCorp Park, the GreenWay and the Saskatoon Field House with new buildings. The University is now working with the community, city-wide stakeholders and campus user groups to refine this plan and add to it – identifying needs, sharing ideas
and brainstorming options for large and small, indoor and outdoor, active and passive recreation options.

How can the plan accommodate a broad range of year-round activities within College Quarter that appeal to a variety of users?
How can it foster a healthy life-style, play and interaction?
How can it provide spaces that draw people outside to sit, unwind and get to know one another?

Some ideas for the Recreation Plan that have been suggested include:
• Trails and cross-country ski loop
• Disc Golf Course
• Bouldering/rock climbing
• Community gardening
• Shaded/protected picnic tables
• Outdoor classrooms
• Skating
• Outdoor adult fitness and child play equipment
• Open air amphitheatre
• Cricket pitch
