Welcome to The Crescents

Regina, Saskatchewan

Tudor and Queen Anne style homes characterize Regina's stylish 1920's neighbourhood, known as the Crescents. Named after its primary streets of Connaught, Angus and Leopold, the district has long been considered one of the city's most attractive and desirable places to live.

Thomas Mawson, a prominent British landscape architect and town planner who was commissioned in 1912, further detailed the initially proposed semi-circle streets in his spirited plan for the city. Although never carried out, the Crescents provides a distinguished example of the civic beauty proposed in Mawson's early vision for Regina. Today, the lushly landscaped properties and decorative facades of the neighbourhoods charming dwellings are situated along lines of mature elms which overarch the curved streets, fashioning the distinct tone of the area.

The Crescents is perfectly situated within walking distance to the downtown core and alongside the Wascana Centre, one of North America's largest urban parks. This beautifully landscaped and spacious park, built around Wascana Lake in the heart of Regina, offers numerous walking trails and is home to cultural prizes such as the Saskatchewan Science Centre and the Royal Saskatchewan Museum.
