Take Five: Fun Outdoor Winter Activities in Regina

If you can’t beat them, join them.

That’s the philosophy in Regina, Canada, where winters are indeed chilly. But instead of staying home and keeping out of the cold, residents bundle up and head out for adventure.

Here are five of our favorite ways to enjoy winter in Regina.

Sharpen Your Blades

You could skate at a different rink almost every day of winter in Regina, which maintains 59 outdoor rinks typically open through mid-February. Check out the rink at Victoria Park to enjoy views of downtown.

Head to Wascana Centre
