Have a pitch, photo request or interested in a media visit to Regina?
We’re eager to share all there is to know about one of Canada’s fastest growing, dynamic cities, Regina, Saskatchewan. From not-to-miss experiences to unexpected spots, and everything in between, we are keen to share compelling stories that showcase the places and people that make our city so unique.
Small-town meets big-city excitement in Regina, the home of beloved sports teams, fervent fans who don colourful costumes in tribute, and Scotty, the world’s largest Tyrannosaurus rex at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum. There’s a trailblazing spirit here, where every tree has been hand-planted and independent entrepreneurship embraces Regina’s industrious and innovative character. The energy bubbles over into recreational adventures in Wascana Park, one of Canada’s largest urban parks and at the city’s popular outdoor music festivals—whether in summer sun or winter snow.
We offer a fresh approach with new itinerary suggestions and updates on exciting authentic Regina experiences.

In the heart of the city you’ll discover one of North America’s largest urban parks –Wascana Centre, with 2,300 acres (930 hectares) of green space, and boasting an inviting urban forest of over 350,000 hand-planted trees. Wascana Park is home to some great attractions and is also an impressive marsh ecosystem.

Nothing is more iconic than experiencing Rider Pride first hand—with or without game tickets! For Saskatchewan Roughrider Football Club home games – head to the practice field at Mosaic Stadium two hours prior to kick-off for a giant tailgate-like atmosphere. For away games – head to any brew pub or restaurant with a TV. For a truly unique experience, check out Casino Regina, where you can watch the game on the Show Lounge big screen. Get geared up at one of our official Rider stores.
