Description

The Temple Gardens Hotel & Spa (formerly Temple Gardens Mineral Spa) is a hotel located in downtown Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada. The resort features 181 rooms, a spa, banquet facilities, a rooftop indoor/outdoor mineral pool, and is connected to Casino Moose Jaw. The hotel was named after the historic Temple Gardens Dance Hall, one block north. The hotel was originally built with 69 rooms at cost of $9 Million Canadian; funds were a mixture of private and government investment. The hotel was later expanded to 179 room. In 2006 the hotel was purchased by Temple REIT, led by (Arni Thorsteinson), for $21 Million Canadian.

Mineral Pool

In 1910 drillers, who were looking for oil, discovered the hot springs that now service the hotel. The springs waters originate from an ancient sea bed 1,350 metres (4,430 ft) below the surface. The water travels under its own pressure through pipes to the spa, which is located about 400 metres (1,300 ft) away.

Notable Events

In 1997 Peter Gzowski's final broadcast of CBC radio program Morningside was broadcast from the resort instead of CBC studios. The broadcast gave the hotel national exposure. The resort café is named the Morningside Cafe in recognition. In 2016, Temple Gardens Hotel & Spa celebrated its 20-year anniversary with extensive renovations to reflect a contemporary urban look.
