Upgrades to parks in south and west Regina are already underway.

New playground equipment will be installed in Mable Brown Park, located in Rosemont/Mount Royal, and Hudson Park, in Albert Park. The city said upgrades will provide an enhanced play experience for children.

Both play areas are expected to open again in early October, weather and construction schedules permitting.
