White City is a commuter town in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. White City is 10 kilometres (6 mi) east of Regina on the Trans-Canada Highway. The town is primarily populated by urban professionals and young families who work in Regina. The town's motto is "Country Living."

History[edit]

White City began on 80 acres (32 ha) owned by Johnstone Lipsett. The community became a hamlet in 1958, a village in 1967 and a town in 2000.

Services[edit]

Water, gas and power utilities in White City are managed by their respective provincial crown corporations. Most properties in the town have central sewer service.

White City has a gas station, two convenience stores, a medical clinic, an insurance broker, three restaurants, an ice hockey arena, a library, a pet supply store, a clothing store (now closed), a meat deli, a credit union, a cafe, and a staffed Canada Post outlet. Housing growth has steadily increased on the south side of the town. The Emerald Park Golf and Country Club is nearby and offers a fully serviced club house (Lost to a fire in 2011) and an 18-hole golf course.

White City is distinguished by other communities in the same area by its large lots and abundance of poplar trees in the older section of town.[citation needed] The town has a green space named Poplar Park.
