Kamloops Heritage Commission
Originally called the Kamloops Heritage Advisory Committee, the Kamloops Heritage Commission was formed in 1979 to serve an advisory role to City Council on heritage matters.
The Commission comprises nine members, including a representative from City Council, and is advised by City staff from the Kamloops Museum and Archives and the Development and Engineering Services Department.
The Commission provides advocacy and educational services to City Council and members of the public and works hard to create and maintain partnerships in heritage disciplines.
These maps and photos provide something for everyone. They are a great digital resource for visitors and residents looking for new experiences and offer the public access to a record of our cultural assets. The City invites you to take a public art tour, learn about our heritage sites, visit our memorial benches, or take a virtual stroll through our parks. See the sights here:
» Heritage: | Through this app's creation, the Kamloops Heritage Commission and the Kamloops Museum & Archives are proud to share information about local heritage properties with residents and visitors.
» Public Art: | The public art map shows photos and the locations of stand alone public art installations and building murals. When available, the artists' names and dates of commission are included.
» Parks: | Kamloops is a popular destination for hiking and biking. Online maps and photos are a great digital resource for park visitors.
» Memorials: | Through the City's Memorial Bench Program, people can pay tribute to their loved ones by purchasing memorial benches in parks or along trails and walkways. Photos of these benches, the plaques attached to them, and the viewscape they provide are now accessible to all.
