Cultural Spaces & Facilities

Cultural Spaces & Facilities

The Municipality of Wawa is lucky to be adorned with an impressive list of spaces and facilities that are utilized by both residents and visitors to our unique community. These assets have become an integral part of Wawa’s cultural makeup whether they are playgrounds, arenas, medical and education facilities, or beaches, hiking trails and canoe routes.

While many of these items are maintained at the cost of our municipal and provincial taxpayers, just as many are supported and sustained by volunteer organizations, community groups and town residents. While some of us may complain about all the extra things that our town does NOT have, the following list is a testament to all the fantastic resources and facilities that Wawa DOES have and are grateful for.

This list of spaces and facilities in the Wawa area was compiled through input during the Wawa Cultural Mapping project which ran from September 2011 to March 2012. This project was sponsored by the Town of Wawa and the Province of Ontario.

Click on the locator pin for more detailed information on each cultural space or facility.  Click on the “Collected Resource” tab to see the full list of sites submitted during this project. If you see anything missing and have any additional items you want to see on this list, please send an email to or enter them on our Wawa Cultural Map Facebook page.
