Welcome to the Camrose Visitor Information Centre, conveniently located in the beautiful and picturesque Bill Fowler Centre. We are home to Ole Uffda, the Scandinavian mascot of Camrose, and the Viking Longship. The Bill Fowler Centre sits on the south shore of Mirror Lake Park, a focal point in Camrose’s urban park system.
The Bill Fowler Centre is home to the Visitor Information Centre as well as the Camrose Chamber of Commerce and is also home to the Bill Fowler Nature Mural. In honor of Bill Fowler, artist James Marshall was commissioned to create a mural which has been carved out of a special red clay brick. The mural features birds and animals that are indigenous to the Mirror Lake area. James later entitled his creation “Life Around the Lake.”
