Well its that time of the week again, here are some photos of skies that were enjoyed by Regina residents this past week. (Skywatch Friday)

How about a 'late evening' theme this week? Here is a photo of a pedestrian bridge located along the western shore of Wascana Lake. This bridge was built in 2003 and serves as part of the Wascana Lake Revitalization Program, its definately a great asset for park goers.

Willow Island on Wascana Lake. This little island can be rented out for Weddings or reunions and serves as one of the best vantage points in the entire 2300 acre Wascana Park (one of the largest urban parks in North America), yes even bigger than Central Park in New York City.

Its that time of week again. Here are a couple photos of skies enjoyed by Regina resident over the past week. (Skywatch Friday)

Here is another pic of Regina's 2 biggest landmarks, the McCallum Hill Twin Office towers on Scarth Street in downtown Regina. In my opinion, these buildings give off some of the best reflections. (click on photos to enlarge)


Built in the 1930's, the Albert Street Memorial Bridge is a landmark here in Regina. This was taken with the flags drawn in honour of the Victoria Day holiday which was celebrated this past weekend.

Unique sculpture located directly in front of the fantastic MacKenzie Art Gallery in Wascana Park. This gallery is a must see for all Regina tourists

Info from (Mackenzie Art Gallery website).

Mary Longman’s Ancestors Rising speaks to the shared history of
First Nations people and the bison with the Wascana Park area.
The four bison horns, which appear to emerge from beneath
the earth, are symbols of courage, strength and respect in First
Nations culture, and represent both the First Nations ancestors
and the bison. The horns sit on the four cardinal directions and
are arranged in a circle, referencing the First Nations belief in the
importance of balance in life. The braided ropes of copper
patina symbolize the power of the ancestors as conduits of
healing energy. These braided ropes support a net of river stones,
which were used as both physical and spiritual tools in Plains
culture; stones were also used to document places, events, and
as commemorations, and so are fittingly included in this
memorial to the history of the Wascana area.

One of our favourite places is the beautiful AE Wilson Park. Our dogs love this park as its relatively quiet most of the time and they can run free.

The "Hotel Saskatchewan" (built in the 1920's) is a grand luxury hotel in downtown Regina that overlooks the beautifiul Victoria Park.

This is one of the most luxurious hotels in Western Canada (Saskatchewan's only 4Diamond rated Hotel) and over the years has hosted many big names such as the Queen Elizabeth II, the Rolling Stones, President Clinton, and Elton John.
