Regina Attractions

Sandman Hotel Group features properties located within a rich mosaic of neighbourhoods and surrounding areas, each with a distinct, welcoming personality. We have compiled a list of useful information below to enhance your stay. 

Sightseeing

Canada's Queen City started out as Pile o' Bones, a humble tent settlement on treeless plain near a small, winding creek.

Today it is the provincial capital with an urban forest of more than 350,000 hand-planted trees, an extensive park system, major attractions, and a rich, colourful heritage.

Residents are proud of the city they've built, and welcome visitors warmly with handshakes, helpful advice and genuine smiles.

The new RCMP Heritage Centre, near the Royal Canadian Mounted Police training academy, is a must-see attraction.

Others include Wascana Centre, a 930 hectare parkland development in the heart of Regina featuring six distinct parks, the Saskatchewan Science Centre / IMAX Theatre, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum and the MacKenzie Art Gallery.

Regina also boasts excellent shopping, restaurants and Casino Regina in the historic Union Station.

Regina Sightseeing

Transport

Regina is pretty navigable, especially its inner city area which roads are on a grid, like most other cities around the region.

Regina also has a Ring Road, though it is only a half ring road and can take you through most of the city.

Activities

Regina, the capital city of Saskatchewan is a wonderful place to visit! Home of one of North America's largest urban parks, Regina's 2,300-acre.

Wascana Centre features major attractions including the MacKenzie Art Gallery, Saskatchewan Legislative Building, Royal Saskatchewan Museum, and the Saskatchewan Science Centre (featuring one of the tallest indoor climbing structures in Canada), and Kramer IMAX Theatre.

Canada's only training academy for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police recruits is also in Regina, as well as one of the country's longest running stage productions: The Trial of Louis Riel.

If gaming is your pleasure, you'll find plenty of action at Casino Regina, located in the historic, magnificently refurbished Union Station. Also - don't forget to take in some Vegas-style entertainment in the Casino Regina Show Lounge.

The city is also very rich in artistic and multicultural traditions, with Canada's longest continuously operating symphony orchestra, the Regina Symphony Orchestra, as well as the Globe Theatre, a company that stages innovative productions in the round.

Mosaic, Regina's three-day festival of culture, celebrates the rich ethnic history of the prairie settlers, and the Dragon Boat Festival brings the mystery, and fun of the Orient to Wascana Lake.
