Wascana Lake and the park that surrounds it provides Reginans with a natural gateway, an escape from the hustle and bustle of busy city life. It may mean a thousand different things to a thousand different people, but there remains one constant - the "mighty" Wascana Lake as locals love to call it, makes memories.

During the summer Wascana Park's lush green surroundings are filled with people jogging, cycling, rollerblading, or quietly walking along the pathways and promenades that follow its shorelines.
   Like you are!

For those people searching for a family outing, numerous picnic sites can be found adjacent to the lake and on Willow Island. Children can spend afternoons at the Candy Cane Park or Wascana Park play areas. Every July 1st Wascana Centre fills with folks ready to view the fireworks and celebrate Canada's birthday. The mighty Wascana, the home of the Regina Rowing and the Wascana Racing Canoe Clubs is the popular venue for canoeing, sailing, and kayaking. There have even been water ski wakeboard demonstrations and competitions! Since the 1990's it has also featured spectacular Dragon Boat Racing. The mighty Wascana was the site of the 2005 Canada Summer Games canoeing and rowing competitions, and it will no doubt become one of North America's favourite competion venues.
