Date and time

This activity runs the duration of Culture Days.


Leduc, AB



Offered in English.


Not all was hard work toiling in the heat or cold in Leduc. Plenty of activities and community events were a staple in building community and creating friendships during Leduc's early days.

This tour will start at the civic centre and meander past playgrounds, arenas, and theatres that once were showing the past joys of recreation for settlers.



On This Spot

The On This Spot app takes people on guided walking tours through the history that surrounds them.

At each stop on their journey users will find themselves standing on the spot a historic photo was taken. They can view a then and now photo comparison, use the built in camera to create their own, and read about local history and how it ties into the broader human experience.

Based in Vancouver, On This Spot is working with heritage, tourism, and business organizations across Canada to expand the app's coverage.
