Regina’s Transition Area has it all. Whether it’s shopping, dining, working, learning, or community involvement, this downtown area is one of a handful in the city that can boast walking as the primary mode of transport.
The Central Library, the library system’s crown jewel, is home to its own art gallery and movie theatre, in addition to community programs, family events, and books (of course). Cornwall Centre and the Scarth Street Mall provide some of the most unique shopping in town, and more restaurants than you can shake a fork at. The pubs, restaurants, and concerts in Vic Park make this the ideal neighbourhood for those with a penchant for the nightlife. For kids, there is the Scarth Street Park, Victoria Park, and the Royal Saskatchewan Museum just a few minutes away. Public elementary and high schools are only a short drive away. Both SIAST and the U of R campuses are available as direct-routes by Regina Transit from this area.
Regina’s downtown is undergoing a revitalization thanks to the pedestrian-only streets being converted and the bicycle lanes already implemented. The Transition Area is transforming itself into one of the most progressive neighbourhoods in Regina, and will undoubtedly be one of the most exciting!
