  • 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.
