SUMMER IN REGINA
Posted on Friday June 10, 2016
With more than 350,000 hand-planted trees, Regina is a green oasis in the middle of the prairies and summer is the perfect time to enjoy all that the city has to offer. Check out some of our favourite things to do in the sun:
Take the family out to a ball game this summer at Currie Field.
If you like baseball, catch Canada’s finest talent in the Junior National Championship. The city’s Optimist Baseball Park will host the tournament from August 18th - 22nd.
2,300 acres of green space is nothing to joke about, especially when there’s a wide variety of activities to enjoy. Whether you visit the Mackenzie Art Gallery or the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, canoe on the lake, or simply take in the wildlife on a leisurely stroll, Wascana Centre is a summer must-do.
Open every Wednesday and Saturday from 9am - 1pm, with over 70 vendors supplying fresh local produce, art, meat, poultry, organic goods and jewelry, the Regina Farmer’s Market is a great place to bring the family.
Summer isn’t summer unless you go to a festival! Located at Wascana Park, Sasktel features wake boarding and skateboarding during the day, followed by nightly concerts featuring Saskatchewan’s top bands and artists.
When you think about Canada, you can’t help but think about our Mounties, and Regina is home to their only training centre for cadets. Designed by Arthur Erickson, the RCMP Heritage Centre tells the story of the RCMP and is a Canadian gem worth checking out.
Berry picking is a great way to get the family out to enjoy a lovely late-summer day, just think of all those fresh strawberries! There are lots of options in the area, but Very Berry Farm is one of our favourites.
Three days of international alternative and folk music will take place at Victoria Park. This year’s festival will include artists such as the Sam Roberts Band, Twin Bandit and The Mavricks, be sure to check it out!
Looking for some outdoor exercise? Buffalo Pound Provincial Park offers hiking, mountain biking and cycling trails for users of all ages and levels.
Even if you can’t make a game, head to a Goodlife Fan Fest. Located on the West Side of Mosaic Stadium, Fan Fest is free to all Riders fans 3 hours before all home games. Admission includes live entertainment, music, football skills test, face painting, and much more, making it the perfect place to bring the family to get pumped up for the game!
