  • So lovely this is a very pretty area for walking. The view of the Legislative building in the background across the water is lovely. It's a pleasure to walk around the lake, the cleanliness of the pat...  more »
  • Worth knowing the Park and walk around at all times. It is a landmark of the capital of Saskatchewan and has a very interesting restaurant.

  • What a lovely place for a long walk! The only reminder that I was actually in the city was the sound of traffic in the distance. Very scenic, with a nice playground for the kids and a path not only ar...  more »

  • Regina has a nice little gem with this park. Very beautiful with the lake, a couple of fountains, some islands, nice bridges, picnic areas, trails and "stalker" geese within and around it. It also has the Saskatchewan Legislative Building and gardens (unfortunately was under renovation when we were there), Royal Saskatchewan Museum and Saskatchewan Science Centre within or nearby. We especially enjoyed the affordable boat rentals (close to Willow on Wascana restaurant). There didn't seem to be a limit on where on the lake you could go with the boats. Visited May 2016
  • Wascana lake is a great place to spend an entire day. You can rent kayaks and canoes at the center to spend the afternoon on the water. Enjoy a delicious meal at the Willow or pick a beautiful spot along the green space for a picnic.
  • Nice park in the center of the city. Walking, jogging, canoeing, etc. are all activities that can be done here. I'd give it at Star rating but the water does get quite ripe on hot days.
  • It's okay, the path isn't very wide and unfortunately there are no bicycle specific lanes so as a pedestrian walking a dog, you have to be vigilant. But then as a cyclist, you have to keep it slow because of the pedestrians. I wish there was a doggy fountain somewhere! I won't let my dog drink that lake water because I know what's in it.
  • One of my favorite places in the city. Such a great place to go for a walk or jog. Usually busy on weekends and after 6. My recommendation is to visit in the mornings when it's quite.

Where to stay in Regina

For convenience, there's no better area to stay than the downtown, between the central station and Wascana Lake. If proximity to the station is important to you, stay north at one of the chain hotels along Saskatchewan Drive. If you'd rather be surrounded by greenery, look south to the more low-key accommodations along College Avenue, which backs onto the large park bordering the lake. Victoria Avenue offers a good selection of hotels in the center, as well as a large cluster of inns and motels as you head east toward the city limits.
