Welcome to the Town of Lumsden's website. Lumsden is a vibrant, growing, progressive community of over 1600 people nestled in the beautiful Qu'Appelle Valley 30 kms. north-west of Regina on Highway #11.

On behalf of all the residents of Lumsden I invite you to pull off the highway and step into a country pace.
