You Better "McNab" a Property in This Community

(Published on - 5/8/2019 12:10:00 AM)

 

 

McNab is a vibrant community in Regina, Sk. The community is located located off the Lewvan between Dewdney Avenue and the CPR tracks.  Close to downtown and has easy access to all parts of the City.  This area is home to plenty of green space and major attractions.

 

 

The McNab neighbourhood is situated on the west limits of the city. It is a compact neighbourhood bordered by the Dieppe Place and Rosemont/Mount Royal neighbourhoods to the north of Dewdney Avenue, the Airport and Cathedral neighbourhood to the south of the CPR rail line, the North Central neighbourhood to the east of Lewvan Drive and the West Industrial lands to the west of Courtney. The CPR Annex and Wascana Crescents are located within the McNab neighbourhood boundaries.

 

The McNab neighbourhood has a rich history with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). In 1882, the North West Mounted Police headquarters were transferred from Fort Walsh to Regina and located in the McNab neighbourhood. Three years later, Métis leader Louis Riel was executed at headquarters. When the scope of the NWMP was enlarged to include all federal police work and headquarters were transferred to Ottawa; the McNab neighbourhood continued to be the home of the RCMP training facilities and more recently the RCMP Heritage Centre.

 

The neighbourhood has a diversity of housing options such as single-detached dwellings and apartments. The McNab neighbourhood is home to the Royal Regina Golf Club, the Historic Government House and Botanical Gardens, Luther High School and Pioneer Village (a large seniors’ special care home). Grassick Park soccer pitch and two other parks are in the McNab neighbourhood.

 The Community Association  has played a major role in the redevelopment of McNab Park by adding new amenities, including trees, benches, picnic tables and flower pots. Representatives of the Community Association are proud to call the McNab neighbourhood home because of the historical significance of the neighbourhood and the beautiful park space along Wascana Creek.
