Regina Neighbourhoods: Douglas Park
The oldest communities in Regina's southeast lie on the north shore of Wascana Lake. This area is close to many Wascana recreational and cultural facilities, yet not far from the city's downtown. This area includes the neighbourhoods of Douglas Place, Dominion Heights, Assiniboia East and Arnheim Place. These neighbourhoods were originally 1950s style 3-bedroom bungalows, and have undergone much recent renovation.
The community has two public elementary, three Catholic elementary, two High Schools (one public, one Catholic), and a public library close-by. SIAST has its St Johns just to the west, and University of Regina is quickly accessible via Broadway and Broad Street, which cuts across Wascana Lake.
Shoppers generally head either to the downtown Market Square area or to the Victoria Square shopping centre, with its "category killer" stores, just a few kilometres away.
This community is in the middle of a range of recreational opportunities. To the south is Wascana Park with the Douglas Park sports centre (with a track and well-lit ball fields). The Saskatchewan Science Centre, Kramer IMAX Theatre are also in the Wascana Park. There is an ice arena just to the north, and the Tartan Club (curling) is just west of the community. Just to the south and across the lake is the Wascana Trail recreational pathway. The Wascana Waterfowl Park is a tremendous natural area on the southern edge of the community.
Homes in this area are mostly detached older homes. House prices in Douglas Park range from $80,000 to $135,000, and in Arnheim Pace (closer to College) homes range from $42,000 to $88,000.
