WAKAMOW VALLEY – River of Turns

Nestled along the Moose Jaw River, this beautifully treed valley has become one of Moose Jaw’s renowned historic locations.  On the south side of the river is the Lions River Park and looking further west is Plaxton’s Lake.  Plaxton’s Lake was Wakamow’s inaugural development and represents the confluence of the Moose Jaw River and Thunder Creek which was the water course that encouraged the CPR to create a rail stop.  The development of Moose Jaw as a city soon followed.

Wakamow means the “turn” in Plains Cree.  The name, pronounced WALK-A-MAW refers to the historic location in Kingsway Park where the river makes an abrupt turn from north to east.  Early natives and settlers knew this area as the “elbow” or “turn” of the Moose Jaw River.
