Wascana Centre is an urban park located in the centre and southeast area of Regina. A Board of Directors, appointed by the province, city and university, manages Wascana Centre Authority (WCA), which was created in 1962 to oversee the area. Funding is provided by the three partners on the basis of 55% from the province, 30% from the city and 15% from the university. Funds for WCA have decreased, remained the same or increased marginally in 14 of the last 16 years. Funding levels in 2002 are lower than the funds allocated in 1981, resulting in staff and program cuts over the years.
