You may notice something different about the fire hydrants in Amherstburg’s downtown district. Eleven fire hydrants have been artistically painted by local high school students in commemoration of Canada’s 150th birthday.
The imagery on the hydrants was carefully chosen to reflect Canada’s diverse culture. Hockey players, provinces, coloured shapes mirroring the Canada 150 logo and scenes from Canadian history appear as the artists’ subject matter.
Stop by The Gordon House Visitor Centre to receive a map outlining the location of all 11 fire hydrants, which are all within walking distance of one another. A fun way to explore Amherstburg!
