Shellbrook is one of the hidden gems of the north central region. Located 30 minutes from the City of Prince Albert, 90 minutes from the City of Saskatoon and 45 minutes from the Prince Albert National Park it is centrally located to all the major centers in Central Saskatchewan and is an ideal commute to many of the northern lakes.
Shellbrook is named after the Shell Brook, which flows just north of the town. Settlers originally came to the land in 1882 and a trading centre was later opened. In 1905 a General Store and the Post Office were first introduced in the community. In 1909 Shellbrook was incorporated as a village and was designated into town status in 1948.
Today, Shellbrook is a growing community of over 1,500 people with a new residential subdivision ready for construction. A new integrated health care facility – Parkland Integrated Health Centre – has recently been completed. It accommodates clinical care, acute care, 24-hour emergency service and long-term care. Thriving businesses – retail, professional and service – line our Main Street, while enthusiastic service and volunteer groups provide a wide range of activities and events throughout town all year.
Additionally, Shellbrook is known for its all- season attractions, which include fishing swimming, boating, hiking and berry picking in the summer and snowmobile trails and cross-country skiing in the winter. Visit Shellbrook today, and plan to make it your home – as we say “come for a visit…stay for a lifetime!
