Wakamow Valley staff and users are all smiles after a few local businesses came to their rescue. 

Last week some culprits went into the only year-round washroom in the park and vadalized the inside, causing about $2,500 to $3,000 in damage. Shortly after, Wakamow took to social media to let residents know that these facilities would be out of order until the proper repairs could be made. 

But at that time staff didn't know that a local business was planning to approach them and offer to fix the facilities for free. This is exactly what happened and not only saved them the roughly $3,000 in parts, but also the installation time as well.

"I think it just speaks to the people of Moose Jaw," said CEO, Margaret Moran. "I've always felt that Moose Jaw is a community that really pulls together when they need to and it just speaks to that very strong [feeling] that there's a lot of pride in Moose Jaw, people take a lot of pride in their parks."

Along with the plumbing business who made the repairs for free, two others also dropped off cheques to Wakamow Valley's office to put towards their current project to upgrade the bathrooms at Connor Park from chemical toilets to four-season facilities. 

But Moran said she couldn't believe the support that came their way following the announcement last week and is happy everything has gone back to normal.

"Everything is up and flushing. I just want to thank everybody - if anybody is looking to help Wakamow bathroom upgrade bathrooms in Connor Park, especially since we are going to be putting in that Challenge Course in this summer, there is going to be a real need to upgrade."

She also noted that just like the residents of Moose Jaw she was taken aback the first time she stepped into our park, noticing it's beauty and all that it has to offer to a park patron. 

"I'm not originally from Moose Jaw, but I remember the first night that we ever stayed in Moose Jaw was camping down in River Park Campground in Wakamow Valley," explained Moran. "And I remember expressing to my husband how lucky we were that we had this beautiful park within Moose Jaw, on the prairies especially, because it's usually pretty hot and dry, not a lot of green."

Locals will be happy to hear the news of the fix as Wakamow Valley has a busy weekend ahead hosting the 7th annual WACA Pow Wow on Saturday and the Bent Wrench Run on Sunday.
