The community of Christina Lake gathered at the visitor’s centre on Dec. 10 to witness the unveiling of the new and improved 3D mural on the flood and walls of the visitor’s centre. The mural spans the first floor of the visitor’s centre, and includes the famous trestle, photos of famous Christina Lake figures and the falls.

The completed mural is designed to be viewed from a few key points in the visitor’s centre, where the angles and mural converge for a seamless 3D experience.

(Right) Artist Tyler Toews (front) was available to pose for pictures on the mural with residents, many of whom enjoyed the trestle feature.
