New heritage walking tours and signs introduced

Three new heritage walking tours, a children’s activity map and 58 new heritage signs were launched recently and Red Deerians were invited to join the celebration. The materials are part of the new Red Deer Revealed collection and were unveiled at Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery.

“The launch of these heritage walking tours and the official unveiling of the new signs are exciting additions to Red Deer’s year of centennial celebrations,” said City Manager Craig Curtis. “The tours and signs will provide a wonderful opportunity for people to learn about and interact with and see our community’s heritage.”

At the event, participants enjoyed refreshments as they learned about some of the highlights of Red Deer’s history and the heritage projects.

Copies of the three new heritage walking tours and the children’s ‘Ghost Hunters Activity Map’ are also available.

Local experts also led people on either ‘The Ghost Collection’ tour or the ‘Saturday in the City’ tour – two of the three new tours that are part of the Red Deer Revealed line.

The Red Deer Revealed heritage walking tours are available online at www.reddeer.ca/heritage. For more information on the heritage programs with the City of Red Deer, call 403-309-6270 or email heritage@reddeer.ca.
