Waskatenau (pronounced WAS-ET-NA) is a Cree word meaning “opening in the bank”. To this day, it is a very open and friendly village of 260 residents, proud of its history and spirit.
Anyone here for a weekend or longer should find something of interest, whether it be a bonspiel, or baseball tournament, a church supper or bingo at the Community Center, Karaoke at a local bar, a card party at the seniors’ Drop-in-Center or dinner in a local restaurant. We are proud to be the baseball capital of Alberta!
