Regina Beach

Regina Beach, Saskatchewan

Regina Beach is located on the south shore of Last Mountain Lake. This is an extremely valuable recreational hot spot and is a must see if visiting the area! Highway 54 north takes you straight to the beach. The public beach is comprised of coarse golden sand mixed with very small pebbles. The lake bottom has a similar composition and drops off a few meters out. The water is very clear, and there is no evidence of weeds growing or washing up on the shoreline. The public beach is long and has both northeast and northwest facing sections. On the east side of the beach there is a marina and a public boat launch. There is a designated swimming area marked by buoys, and all swimming is unsupervised. No pets on the beach.

Access to the beach is via highway 54 north, and it leads to several larged paved parking lots to accommodate the popularity of the beach. The parking lots open directly onto the beach area. This beach is one of Saskatchewans most popular, and it is easy to understand why!

The view from the beach is of hills and valleys, some of which have residential properties. The area upland of and surrounding Regina Beach is also quite popular for cottage development. It is a popular boating lake, but boat activity does not conflict with beach enjoyment. The beach backs onto a grassy hill that protects from the sights and sounds of nearby roads and parking. As you walk west along the beach there is a large playground for children, a beach volleyball court, and several benches and picnic tables for day use. Trash and recycling facilities are abundant. The entire area is interspersed with large trees that provide shade throughout the day. The park has washrooms and change houses for beach-goers, and the beach community upland of the water is bustling. There are restaurants, shops, and all sorts of local amenities that make this a great place to visit for the day!

MONITORING FREQUENCY

Regina Beach is not sampled

SOURCE INFORMATION

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Health monitors freshwater beaches across the province of Saskatchewan. Water samples at this beach are processed by the Roy Romanow Provincial Laboratory.

Beaches are monitored at varying frequencies for E. Coli and cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) from the end of June to the end of August. There are weekly reports on the beaches’ recreational water quality results posted on the Healthy Beach Program website from July to early September.

Water quality is monitored in accordance with the Guidelines for Canadian Recreational Water Quality under Saskatchewan’s Healthy Beach Program.

The levels of E. coli are measured using the most probable number methodology. High levels of E. coli can indicate faecal contamination, which poses human health risks for gastrointestinal illnesses, as well as ear, nose, and throat infections. In accordance with the guidelines, a beach is marked green when a single sample result is less than 400 E. coli organisms in 100 milliliters of water or the geometric mean of five samples is less than or equal to 200 E. coli per 100 milliliters of water. A beach is marked red when a single sample results has greater than 400 E. coli per 100 ml of water.

The Government of Saskatchewan advises to avoid swimming and in-water activities during water quality advisories. There will be warning signs at the beaches with poor water quality results until the risk to public health is resolved.
