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.




Fall Landfill Hours

The fall landfill hours are as follows:


Monday to Friday: 8:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m. 
Saturday: 8:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.


Please enter not later than 15 minutes before closing to allow for material handling.

City Bylaw #16-1981 and Bylaw #9/2003 requires that all loads transported to the landfill be securely fastened so as not to allow debris to fall onto the highway, offences subject to a $100 fine.




Aquatic Centre News
