QUARRY PARK HERITAGE ARTS CENTRE Town of Stonewall
Quarry Park Heritage Arts Centre is nestled in the rugged beauty of a former limestone quarry that has been transformed into a year-round park. Quarry Park also features a campground, a man-made lake, baseball diamonds and walking trails.
Take a leisurely stroll along the walking trails. Listen to the birds and enjoy the wild flowers or just sit and enjoy the view from the park benches by the pond.
Stop by the Centre and take in the work of local artists on display in the upper lobby. Listen to the voices of the quarry workers and try your hand at driving loaders or breaking rock in the interactive exhibits.
For the more adventurous try a walking tour of the town. Along the way you’ll visit the childhood home of Canada’s youngest Victoria Cross recipient and learn of his daring exploits and hear the tales of many of the colorful characters from this quarry town’s past.
Guided group tours are available but must be booked in advance. If you prefer to go at your own pace, brochures are available for self-guided walks on the walking trails and for the town heritage tour.
Once you’re done your walk why not stay and watch a ball game at Fines Field or cool off with a refreshing swim in the man-made lake.
