Heritage Walking Tour

  
"The Promise & Potential of Yorkton"

Often the history of a community can only be found in dusty books and by looking at faded photos. But the history of Yorkton is alive and well in the form of a self-guided walking tour.

Private homes and public buildings are of interest both in their relationship to the history of Yorkton and as samples of the city's architectural heritage.

The tour begins at the Godfrey Dean Cultural Centre and ends at 29 Myrtle Avenue. If you proceed at a leisurely pace, the walk will take about an hour and a half. For a brochure on the tour which includes a map, contact Tourism Yorkton by calling 783-8707.
