In August, Regina enjoys warm days and cooler evenings. The downtown core is relatively close and between the university and the city centre lies one of the largest urban parks in Canada, known as Wascana Park, which includes, walking paths, the Provincial Legislature, Wascana Lake and the Royal Saskatchewan Museum. Walking from campus through the park is rather enjoyable and straightforward. Participants may also consult the tourism Regina website.
There are a number of local restaurants (from fast-food, to pub-style, to gourmet dining) near the suggested hotels that run along South Albert Street, including various grocery stores (a simple Google search, of restaurants near, for example, 4025 Albert Street will get you started).
