Lonely Planet review
The geographic and cultural center of Regina is Wascana Centre. Where once a small river flowed, the creation of Wascana Lake in 1908 gave birth to the focal point of this prairie town. This enormous park is a great place to be on a nice day, with walking trails, a bandstand and heaps of green space. A huge project in 2004 deepened the lake and banished foul-smelling weeds. Now the clear waters provide mirrored accents to vistas that include the stunning Provincial Legislature. Look for animals such as mink, hare, beaver and even the odd moose.
Wascana Place has some park information and useful maps. Marina Rentals rents canoes, kayaks and pedal boats. Spruce Island is a bird sanctuary visible from the shore.
