Moose Jaw Hotel with a Mineral Pool
From March 4 to 24, 2019 while pool upgrades and other hotel improvements are ongoing the mineral pool, Sun Tree Spa, and all food & beverage outlets will be closed. We look forward to unveiling the refinished pool on the 25th of March.
The mineral spa at Temple Gardens Hotel & Spa is a haven, which connects two warming pools, one indoors and the other outdoors via a convenient water passage.
The outdoor pool can be enjoyed year-round and is pure bliss on a prairie winter day, while the indoor pool offers a variety of depths and temperatures as well as the soothing sounds of a waterfall. To optimize your Sun Tree Spa experience, we recommend taking the waters prior to your treatment.
The History of "Liquid Gold"
The source of the geothermal water that has made Temple Gardens Hotel & Spa world-famous was discovered accidentally in 1910 when a deep well was bored in an effort to locate natural gas. In 1980, the City of Moose Jaw drilled a new geothermal well into porous foundations that was once an ancient seabed, providing Temple Gardens Hotel & Spa with its therapeutic mineral waters.
Under its own pressure, the water travels through an insulated pipeline from the well-head located approximately 0.8 kilometers (1/4 mile) away. Geothermal heat from the much deeper molten mass of the earth's core continually warms the reservoirs of mineral water to a well-head temperature of about 45°C (113°F). The mineral water loses less than one degree as it passes through the insulated pipeline to the Spa.
