Why look any further. This man-made island, located in the north east area of Wascana Lake (near Broadway Avenue & Wascana Drive) offers something that cannot be truly experienced anywhere else in Regina, an ISLAND.
Willow's not just an island. Two firepits, several barbecues, picnic tables, washrooms, water fountain.
So who actually comes to Willow Island?
Families and friends having a barbecue.
Kids birthdays parties are tremendously popular, for many it is not only their first time on a boat, but also on an island. Backyard birthday, or an island birthday? Wonder which the children would prefer.
A summer band program has used the island for its course end event for several years now.
Elementary classes have also made regular use over the years for their end of classes party. Sit at a desk and eat a cookie, or goto Willow and have some fun? Tough choice.
Bands. Family reunions. Small work get togethers.
Yukon / NWT / Nunavut Canada Games Committee had a function here in 2005.
On the left side of this screen there are several links to the different aspects of Willow Island.
Cost, hours of operation, regulations, and booking information as well as numerous picture to help decide if Willow is the place to go.
I also recommend renting a Dino Bouncer for the kids.
