SNACK BREAK

Before continuing on, be sure to stop at Pretzel Shack (4305 50 Street) for handmade German baking and desserts!

GET GROUNDED

Take a rest and enjoy your treats at Oatway Park’s (50 Oatway Drive) Trifecta (2022), Stony Plain’s first public art bench where the heaviness of the work represents a sense of grounding.

GOLDEN YEARS

Head over to Stony Plain Town Office (4905 51 Avenue) where you will see Story Time and Golden Years (2008), purchased for Stony Plain’s 100th birthday, represents old to young and how learning is shared.

HANDMADE TREASURES

Across the road from Town Office you can find the Parkland Potters Guild (4912 51 Avenue). Visit their storefront, the Crooked Pot Gallery, which offers sculptures, functional pottery, collectables, and seasonal items at affordable prices for a one-of-a-kind souvenir!

ANYTHING BUT COMMON

The final stop takes you to Red Brick Common (5411 51 Avenue) to see Horse and Rider (1974), a sculpture and fountain in commemoration of the RCMP centennial, representing a Mountie leading his horse over a stream.

If you still have a craving for more art, inside Red Brick Common you will find a public art gallery, as well as an artisan gift shop and much more!
