Visitor Centre 1.jpgThe Visitor's Centre for the City of Estevan opened their doors to the public earlier this week. 

"We have a few different things that the Visitor's Centre will house," shared Destination Marketing and Communications Consultant, Rebecca Westling. "One being, it's the meeting location for the Energy Tour. So people can meet there, they can book an Energy Tour there either by dropping in and making a reservation or by calling the office line which is 306-634-1892."

Estevan, Saskatchewan, and Canadian merchandise will also be for sale in the Centre.Visitor Centre 3.jpg

"As well as stuff that would relate to the Energy Tour like bags of coal, things about coal, that type of thing."

The decision was made to move to the Leisure Centre when they realized that the location on Highway 39 was not being used to its potential. 

"The last few years we've been tracking our statistics on who is coming to the previous location and what they're doing there and what they're asking for. Based on those statistics, we felt that most people were coming to the Visitor's Centre to use the washroom. It was really hard to convert those people who were driving through, they just wanted to quickly use the washroom and then head on their way."

"We wanted to share with people who were already in the city that were staying here, that were using our facilities more about the city. Maybe they would venture out into the arts program or head over to the art gallery if they knew a little bit more about what's happening there."

And there's also information for residents as well.

"We're really trying to focus our material and sharing information about what's happening in Estevan. So if anyone belongs to any organization, please share with us that information so we can share with others."

There will also be a small confectionary spot as well.
