Introducing the Inner Harbour App

The rich and varied history of Kingston’s Inner Harbour is barely visible to the naked eye. Through photos, maps, text and audio, the free “Life and Labour in the Inner Harbour” app walking tour aims to help you imagine the area as it was at various times in the past 350 years.

Each of the 10 stops features an audio clip no more than 5 minutes long that you can listen to while looking around you and at the images on your screen. The tour should take you something like an hour to complete. It starts at Gate 1 of the K-Rock Centre (corner of Place d’Armes and Ontario), proceeds north through Douglas Fluhrer Park, and ends at the corner of Cataraqui and Rideau streets.

The tour was released in 2015. It was researched by Bronwyn Jaques and Laura Murray, and written by Laura Murray; it is available for free in French and English.

Available for Android users only. Get it at the Google Play Store by installing the Walking Tours of Kingston.
