I’ll be adding more details to the stories behind these, but for now, you can explore the following.

• This statue was designed by artist and sculptor Mac Mackenzie.
Canada 150 Mural Mosaic
• located on the east face of the building at the outdoor skating rink in the Tim Bannister Memorial Rink at 324 Ross Ave, Cochrane, AB.
• This mural was part of the Canada 150 Mural Project. It is the largest of the murals created for that project and consists of over 1500 tiles painted by Cochrane and area artists. It measures 40 feet wide by 8 feet tall and represents four elements of the Cochrane Community – our native and western heritage, mountain hiking, families at play, and fly fishing.
