This sculpture is actually a real sundial. It is one of the few recognizable landmarks in Grande Prairie, located in the intersection of Highway 43 (part of 116 Ave) and 106 St, next to Centre 2000.
It’s an attraction for tourists mainly or for any special photography occasions such as weddings. Otherwise, I don’t see local residents stop by very often; usually they just drive by it.
I think this momument deserves more attention, because it can look very pretty during sunrise. I took this photo around 6:30am in September. If you don’t want to wake up that early, you can try 7:30am in early October. It’s equally impressive. Check out the sunset photos here.
