Welcome to Lloydminster!

In Lloydminster, visitors and locals can literally see where the city divides. Located in front of City Hall there are four 30.48 m (100 ft) high surveyor markers that distinguish the Albertan and Saskatchewan side from each other. In 1905, Lloydminster split in two when the 4th Meridian was used as the boundary line between the new provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. In 1930, Lloydminster amalgamated back into a single municipality, first as a town and then in 1958 it became a city. Since Lloydminster is a "Border City" there are some things that make it different from other cities. The Alberta side's area code is (780), while the Saskatchewan side is (306). Saskatchewan does not go by daylight savings, but the province made an exception for Lloydminster, so the city would be on the same time zone as Alberta. While visiting Lloydminster check out the boundary line, which runs down Meridian Avenue (50th Avenue), to stand in two places at one time. To learn more about the culture of the area, tour through the Barr Colony Heritage Cultural Centre. For family fun, view the fuzzy and exotic creatures at the Border City Petting Zoo, pick Saskatoon berries at Berryview Farms and spend time outdoors at Sandy Beach Regional Park.
