"The park sits in its silence in the middle of one of the most incredible cities in the worls. Regina.....The little town
that not only could, but did....It is a city that from the very beginning had the imagination of 1,000 children, the
strength of a mountain, the nerve of Houdini, the stamina of a farmer at harvest, the dedication of a heart surgeon.
How else can you explain, describe, comprehend, the turning of all these acres of dirt and dust and scrub grass and
loneliness and nothingness into a place that has become on of the great cities in the country?"
