Shalom Park is a man-made water ski lake nestled in the North Saskatchewan River Valley, just south of Edmonton. Shalom Park was built in 1985 and has hosted a multitude of local, national and international tournaments, including multiple Canadian National Championships, the Canadian Open (an IWWF Elite event), and the 1996 Junior Water Ski World Championships. Multiple national and international records have been set at Shalom Park, including an IWWF Open Men overall record in 2000 by Canada’s Jaret Llewellyn and an IWWF Junior Men slalom record by U.S. athlete Chris Parrish that stood for almost 20 years until it was broken by Robert Pigozzi from the Dominican Republic in 2015.

The 2019 Under 21 Water Ski World Championships will be supported by Water Ski and Wakeboard Canada, the national governing body for towed water sports in Canada, and towed by the Ski Nautique.
