Today we are starting a series of blog posts that will introduce you to downtown Prince Albert.
Over the past few months I have seen a lot of posts on social media based on ignorance regarding the downtown. Ignorance comes from a lack of knowledge or information. I will accept the responsibility for the of lack of information regarding all of the positive things that are happening in the downtown. In order to correct this, I am starting a series of blog posts that will introduce you to and education you on all things downtown Prince Albert.
The area is rich in history and culture and the community atmosphere among the local business owners and local shoppers is unique and welcoming.
I have been the Executive Director for just over two years. It is a pleasure to serve the downtown community. The improvements and growth that I have seen in just two years is encouraging and more advanced than the majority of downtown's across Canada. As a member of the International Downtown Association and the Canadian chapter I am able to see what other communities are struggling with. Prince Albert is not only on the right track but ahead of the curve.
I have been able to participate in many walking tours of the downtown with Fred Payton and representatives of the Historical Museum. I have lived in Prince Albert for over 20 years and I was unaware of the amazing history and settlements that took place here that have helped shape Western Canada.
Over the next few weeks I will be featuring blog posts that will help introduce you to what you can find downtown, the uniqueness of Prince Albert that will hopefully encourage you to explore Downtown Prince Albert and have pride in your hometown.
We will also be showing features on our Instagram page and you can share along with us by using #princealbertdowntown
Downtown the cultural heart of our City. Locally produced, this video features a new song by Prince Albert's LJ Tyson and takes us through some of the well-known spaces that we all grew up with and even some that you may have never noticed before.
How many can you list? Leave a comment for us and see if you can name them all!

Love LJ. What a great video! My family & I took a drive by the river, looked at some incredible looking homes, the gorgeous sunset we have, Keyhole Castle (one of my City favourites) and the house Lucy Maude Montgomery lived in for a year. We have beautiful city. 😍

I have been working downtown for 6 years and I love being able to work in the heart of our city. People are so friendly, from transients to business owners! The historical buildings are a gorgeous contrast in our modern community. My favorite restaurants are on central and there is so much to do between the Prince Albert Arts Centre and the Mann Art Gallery, especially with the little galleries and shops inbetween. There is literally something for everyone down town.
