Where is Regina?

Placed in the middle of the prairies, Regina boasts a unique landscape whose central location makes exploration of all the country has to offer easier than coastal living. While the city is small enough to traverse by car in ~20 minutes, forests, mountains, and an amazing prairie grassland National Park are all within reach, less than a day’s drive from the city.

For those who wish to stick to the city, Regina has a lot to offer in terms of history, heritage, and culture. There are a number of green spaces, retail spaces, art galleries, museums, theatres, and sports arenas that anyone can access. With a full range of temperatures, from snow in winter to hot summer days, there’s an outside activity for everyone: paddle boarding on Wascana Lake, or ice skating at one of the outdoor rinks.
