Recreation Master Plan:

  • The Leader-Post has highlighted the need for more Aquatic space, specifically an improved indoor pool facility, see (link). Some Dolphins members have formed the Regina Aquatics Foundation (RAF) to  support this endeavour. RAF is a non-profit organization that was formed in November 2017 and currently represents over 1300 Lawson users from various aquatics clubs in the city.  RAF is lobbying our City decision makers to approve the Master plan. Rob Nelson & Nannette Choboter from RAF will address  City Council on Monday and outline their support  in hopes that City Council will approve  and adopt the recommendation for a new Indoor Aquatics facility in Regina.  See the link for the Recreation Master Plan.
