WASCANA CENTRE
WATERFOWL PARK DISPLAY PONDS

THESE DISPLAY PONDS ARE MAINTAINED BY WASCANA CENTRE AUTHORITY AS A
SERVICE TO THE PUBLIC TO DISPLAY NATIVE SPECIES OF WATERFOWL COMMON
AND UNCOMMON TO THE AREA. SOME OF THE BIRDS WHICH YOU SEE IN THIS AREA
ARE CAPTIVE AND CARED FOR YEAR ROUND. OTHERS ARE FREE FLYING AND SPEND
ONLY A PORTION OF THE YEAR WITH US.
OUTSIDE THE FENCE, WATERFOWL PARK, IS AN AREA SET ASIDE BY WASCANA CENTRE
TO PRESERVE A NATURAL HABITAT AND THE FORMS OF LIFE FOUND THEREIN.
WASCANA WATERFOWL PARK CONSISTS OF 202 HECTARES AND EXTENDS FROM
BROAD STREET EAST BEYOND THE NO.1 BYPASS TO RAINBOW BRIDGE. THE
POLICY OF WASCANA CENTRE AUTHORITY WILL BE TO PROTECT AND PRESERVE
THE NATURAL HABITAT FOUND IN THIS PRAIRIE MARSH, AND TO ENCOURAGE THE

HOPED THAT FUTURE GENERATIONS WILL NOT ONLY BENEFIT FROM THE WORK OF
THE PRESENT, BUT WILL SEE TO IT THAT SUCH AREAS ARE PRESERVED.
