Summer or winter, north or south, city or country - there's always lots to do in Saskatchewan.
Regina, the Capital City of Saskatchewan, is located in the southern portion of the province. The city is home to the largest legislative building in Canada and hosts the world renowned Royal Canadian Mounted Police Training Academy and RCMP Heritage Centre.
In the heart of the city you will find Wascana Centre - a 2300-acre urban park boasting a pristine view of the Saskatchewan Legislature, marina, walking paths, bird watching venues, park area, tennis courts, picnic and BBQ sites. The park also accommodates the Saskatchewan Science Centre and Kramer Imax Theatre, the MacKenzie Art Gallery, and the Royal Saskatchewan Museum.
Aside from the many attractions, Regina is also rich in resources as agriculture, tourism, and oil and gas production fuel the economy. While Regina's economic base is diverse it is also recognized as one of the most affordable places to live, work and do business in western North America.
