We wanted to stop to produce our Oh Canada Eh! Game video and we're looking for a good downtown location. That's when we saw the Walkerton Library and Art Gallery. It was perfect!

As a background, we used the "Fish" art sculture located near the building's wall.
Since Walkerton is located on the Saugeen River, the town wanted to promote its excellent sports fishing. As a result there are a number ot fish or fishing art scultures and mural located around the town.

On our way out of town we passed a sign showing us the way to Lobies Park.
"Welcome to Lobies Park."
Lobies Park, located on Saugeen River, seems to offer "something for everyone"! There's the the play area for kids.
And there's camping areas available, and much more!
Across from the park we passed an interesting old building. There were rusted vehicle outside. We were intrigued by its presents. The rustic scene was beautiful in its own way.
We were finally leaving Walkerton. On our way out we passed several interesting buildings. One that really caught our eye was the Victoria Jubilee Hall. The Victoria Jubilee Hall's cornerstone was laid on August 15th, 1897 in celebration and commemoration of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee.
