Columbus Park is a baseball park within the city of Regina that the Knights of Columbus have looked after for a significant number of years. It is their hope to have this monument as a means of creating a legacy to visually demonstrate this involvement and also as a means of creating a further awareness of the community involvement of the Knights of Columbus.
It will be situated on the edge of Columbus Park (Park Street near the Regina Airport) and be visible to walking and driving viewers.
A small portion of this monument was constructed in 2005 in commemoration of Saskatchewan’s Centennial. It is the intent to finalize this portion by July 1, 2017 in concert with Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations.
The main structure will be completed with concrete and the design is meant to minimize vandalism.
The budget to complete this project is $15,000.00 – $18,000.00. As a partner, we will have our name on the plaque together with the Knights of Columbus and the 4th Degree Assembly. There will also be a plaque on the base where any personal contributors presenting over $100.00 will be recognized. Donations will be accepted by the Sask K of C Charitable Foundation till June 30th, 2017.
