In a small park in Regina, Saskatchewan, there is a large hedge unmistakably sculpted in the shape of a grasshopper. His name is Reginald. 

Local artist Wilf Perreault originally installed the sculpture in 1986 in Victoria Park, where it was filled with soil and covered in sod. The work was to be removed after its temporary exhibition, but in 2001 the leafy insect found its way to its current location. 

Elsewhere in Regina are other unsanctioned sculptures, including a tiled frog (aka “David Gillhooly’s frog”) built by ceramic students, and Ken Tollefson’s cement bever, located in Les Sherman Park.
