Tourist Information Centre

The present Wolseley Tourist Information Centre was built in 1986 and is situated at the west entrance of town, off #1 highway.  Prior to this one we had a small building on the #1 highway by the water fountain east of town.  as this created a traffic hazard by being too close to the highway's edge, the Department of Highways asked that it be closed and move fountain and all, to a more suitable location.  the present site has been a much better choice, not only for its accessbility to the travelling public, but the safety feature and an area to park, were of prime importance.

Our facilities are opened usually the long weekend of May and close the Labour Day weekend, thus giving travellers an opportunity to secure maps, brochures of all kinds and general information that is readily available.  We also provide washrooms, wi-fi connection, sewage dump, and a water fountain.

The tourist business can be very beneficial to any community and if we can meet and greet a stranger in our Information Centre, give some helpful advice, we give our Province a little boost.  In our Wolseley location we are very fortunate that our local people co-operate so willingly as volunteers and our summer staff to run the facilities.  Without them we could not begin to serve our fellow travellers.
