We are looking forward to welcoming visitors back to the St. Albert Grain Elevator Park and Historic River Lot 23 & 24 as of June 16th, 2021. Following safety protocols, we’ve been hard at work to get the site ready over the past year. The biggest changes will be found on River Lots 23 & 24, the Francophone and Metis river lot sites .
Restoration to Maison Chevigny continued in 2020 with focus on the interior. Safety barriers and an accessible ramp were installed. Click here for an inside peak at the recent work done.
It’s impossible to talk about the historic sites without mentioning the ever-popular St. Albert Grain Elevator Park. Last year the green grain elevator, built in 1929, also had conservation work completed with a fresh coat of paint to keep the building looking great while preserving the wood from Alberta’s harsh weather.
This summer a new community garden opened on Historic River Lot 23 & 24. Gardeners (and pollinators!) have been hard at work in their plots. Carrots, onions and lots of potatoes have been generously planted by a local brownie troop and the community gardeners for the food bank.
We are so looking forward to welcoming the public back safely to the Grain Elevator Park and Historic River Lot 23 & 24.
The sites will be open for guided public tours Wednesday – Friday from 1pm – 6pm, and Saturday to Sunday from 10am – 5pm.
