We’ve switched to biennial data gathering for the city profiles — The data available here was collected in early 2022 and originally published in last year’s Canadian City Parks Report.
City Profile
Population: 226,404
  • Regina is one of 53% of cities with a park system master plan updated within the last 10 years.
  • Regina is one of 70% of cities with a community park group program.
  • Regina is one of 90% of cities with a community grant program that can be used to fund park projects.
  • Regina’s Civic Naming Committee Guidelines targets 50% of parks to bear a name with Indigenous connections. Dewdney Park was renamed to Buffalo Meadows Park in light of Dewdney’s role in causing harm to Indigenous Peoples through colonial policies and residential schools.
  • Regina’s parks will soon feature “reflection benches” that remind park visitors to take a moment to reflect on their mental health and the well-being of those around them. Each bench features a sign with a note about mental health and a QR code that connects them to wellness and mental health resources.
  • The city partnered with Nature Regina to deliver a variety of outdoor programs to encourage people to get active especially during the winter months. Activities included nature walks, snowshoeing, crokicurl, and cross-country skiing.
