Photo: City Hall Building Fountain Regina Saskatchewan Canada

A view behind an 'I Love Regina' sign of the City Hall Building and fountain, located in Queen Elizabeth II Court in Regina, the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. Opened in 1976, it became the new City Hall after the old one was demolished.

This is the fourth and current City Hall for the city of Regina. Opened on December 14 1976, the building faces Victoria Avenue between McIntyre Street and Smith Street, and was supervised by architect Joseph Pettick. The total cost of construction was $10.1 million. It rises about 16 stories high and is situated in what is known as Queen Elizabeth II Court.

The previous City Hall used to be Regina's main post office, but that building was torn down when this new building was built.

Regina has a population of almost 200,000 people and settlers didn't come to the area until about 1882. It's name comes from Queen Victoria of the British Empire, as 'Regina' is Latin for Queen. Regina is often referred to by nickname as the 'Queen City'. Regina became the capital of the Northwest Territories in 1883 and due to its fast growing population, it officially became a city in 1903. ... continue below the picture...

There were three City Halls before this one, and although the city is proud of its current day City Hall, it is built in the classical 70s style of architecture; a concrete building that is a little plain, but rises majestically above the sparkling fountain below.
