The SWF Hall is located north of Sutherland on Lowe Road. Since Lowe road at Attridge is now closed the best way to get to the club is going north on Central, once it becomes a grid road go about .5 km farther until you come to your first available right. Which is Agra Road. On the corner you will see the City of Saskatoon’s Rock Pile. Go east until you come to an intersection and go north on Lowe Road and we are about 2km on your left hand side.
