Things to See & Do
Through the efforts and vision of Russell’s Main Street Revitalization committee, the face of Main Street in Russell continues to evolve into an inviting space for the enjoyment of residents and visitors alike. The majority of the work to the streetscape was completed in 2011. The wooden arches and sidewalk are adorned with lights along four blocks in the downtown core. This is complemented by planters filled with colourful flowers in summer, seasonal décor in the fall and evergreen wreaths over the Christmas season.
Visitors will notice the addition of new commercial buildings that house Vanguard Credit Union and TinHouse Designs & Coffee Co., along with exterior enhancements to the Multiplex and other retail shops & services along the business corridor. Friendly shopkeepers welcome visitors to view their wares, while opportunities to enjoy a good cup of coffee or an excellent meal with friends can easily be found.
