A sundial is a fascinating instrument. Sundials date back to about 1500 BC when L-shaped sundials were used in Egypt.
The Sundial is a horizontal dial that stretches 10 square meters with a gnomon 5 meters high and is specifically designed for the latitude and longitude of the site.
It incorporates the 12 heritage icons that depict the Eastman region, themes of the First Peoples, La Verendrye, the fur trade, the development of hydroelectric power, industry research, as well as others. The structure teaches visitors how you can tell time on one of the world’s oldest timepieces.
The Sundial is located in the heart of Pinawa overlooking the Winnipeg River.
