Regina and The RCMP Heritage Center


The RCMP Heritage Center is well worth the stop. All of us really enjoyed it. The Heritage Center is an RCMP museum that has the history of our National police force laid out with photos, videos and even a virtual reality exhibit where you take part in a traditional mounted musical ride. If you are lucky enough to be there at 12:45, you can cross the parking lot to the RCMP training depot and watch the Sargent Major's parade. We were able to watch first hand as the drill staff put the young cadets through their paces. Their was an inspection, a role call, lots of synchronized marching and a band. The kids were mesmerized by the precision. Wyatt even got up the courage to ask a question "Do you build police stations with couch cushions like my sisters?"

Unfortunately, we didn't get to see that much of Regina itself. We waved hello as we drove past on the highway. We had planned on walking around downtown and getting to know the city. Sadly, Evan had a reaction to a bug bite so we opted for a trip to a walk in clinic on the outskirts of town instead. Evan was fine and mom felt reassured. It was now four in the afternoon and we still had a three hour drive ahead of us to Riding Mountain National Park.
