UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF THE NORTH (UCN): The new campus being built at Thompson is designed to train Aboriginal and northern students. It will include student housing and childcare facilities. There are two main campuses in The Pas and Thompson with satellite campuses in other communities. The Thompson campus, costing $82 million will serve the educational and training needs of the north and will make an impact on the economy of the province.

HERB LAKE LANDING SENIORS: There is a Seniors hall for a meeting place which contains exercise equipment and a shuffleboard. Residents also gather for coffee and card games.

PICNIC GROUNDS: Our picnic area is used as a gathering place for activities in the summer. There is a screened gazebo which provides shelter in the summer from flies plus a firepit for group events. A flagpole and a cairn with a plaque honoring the pioneers of the area overlooks the water.

BEACH: There is a pathway to the water by Spencers' Bay to the beach and another pathway from the roadway to the beach by the cliffs. The beach is suitable for swimming as the water is shallow and warm in the summer months. Our community is on the south shores of Wekusko Lake and the predominant wind is from the North, which blows a lot of debris onto the beach. Volunteers maintain the area but help is always appreciated to keep the beach clean.

GOLF COURSE: There is a 9-hole golf course at Snow Lake.
