Heritage

Heritage is a combination of the things that give us a sense of self. It is the traditions we keep, the languages we speak, the music we play, the books we read, the tools we use, the stories passed down through our families, the nursery rhymes and lullabies our parents and grand-parents sang to us. It is also the buildings we live in and use, the parks that we play in and the forests and mountains that we cherish.

The City provides a range of initiatives that support our community's built, cultural and natural heritage including:

  • supporting the designation, protection and restoration of historic resources, sites, cultural landscapes and heritage districts;
  • promoting heritage education and awareness through heritage signage and heritage walking, biking and driving tours;
  • providing advice, assistance and support on heritage related issues to community groups, individuals and property owners;
  • maintaining an inventory of the City of Red Deer's historic resources.
