This 930-hectare (2,298-acre) park in the city center -- one of the largest urban parks in North America -- contains its own waterfowl park, frequented by 60 or more species of marsh and water birds. There's a naturalist on duty Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm. Another delightful spot is Willow Island, a manmade island reached by a small ferry from the overlook west of Broad Street on Wascana Drive. Other highlights include a fountain that once stood in London's Trafalgar Square, a totem pole, and a war memorial. In winter, ice skaters take to the park's central lake, and cross-country skiers navigate its snowy trails.

The center also contains the domed Saskatchewan Legislative Building, the University of Regina, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, the MacKenzie Art Gallery, and the Saskatchewan Centre of the Arts.
