History of Our Community
The North East Community was originally an unincorporated settlement (village) within the Rural Municipality of Sherwood and called North Annex, It was developed around 1915 to provide housing for both railway workers with the Canadian National Railways and industrial workers associated with the Imperial Oil Refinery.
Postwar, the city adopted a de facto metropolitan form of government by annexing the independent village of North Regina in 1951. In both cases, the prime motivating factor in amalgamation was the prospect of getting connected to the city's water lines for drinking water and sewage for the residents.
The North East neighbourhood includes the large lot subdivision of Churchill Downs which is a unique historic feature of the community, created for veterans of the Second World War, Churchill Place, Cityview, Highland Park, North Annex and a section of Mount Pleasant. North East is home to Northgate Mall, Regina’s first enclosed shopping centre.
Recent improvements to outdoor recreation features outdoor boarded rink, spray pad, skateboard pod, picnic area, walking paths and benches at Imperial Park, play structure at Dover Park, and small toboggan hill at St. Anne Park.
