River Heights - Regina, Saskatchewan neighbourhoods and nearby communities
This area, south of Wascana Creek, is snuggled between a couple of parks and a golf course. On the other sides, it borders two major arteries connecting the rest of Regina to the Airport (and the community to those features as well). The community is about 45 years old, and has many interesting homes with mature landscaping.
The community has a public elementary, a Catholic elementary nearby, Sheldon Williams High School, and a public library. SIAST has its St Johns just to the east, and University of Regina is quickly accessible via Broad Street, which cuts across Wascana Lake.
Shoppers generally head either to the downtown Market Square area or browse the quaint specialty shops along 13th Ave. Other malls are conveniently south on Albert Street just a few kilometres.
This community is in the middle of a range of recreational opportunities. To the south is Wascana Park with the Wascana outdoor pool, The Royal Saskatchewan Museum and the ferry to Willow Island. The Tartan Club (curling) is just east of the community. Just across the lake is access to the Wascana Trail recreational pathway. To the west of downtown is Regina Exhibition Park, with its Queensbury Downs Race track and the Agridome, Taylor Field, and the Lawson Aquatic Centre.
Homes in this area are mostly detached older homes, with house price ranging from $67,000 to $107,000.
