Max the Moose

Outside the Dryden Information Centre is the town's mascot, Max, a cement statue that is 18 feet tall and weighs nine tons.

Max is the City of Dryden’s official mascot. He stands proudly in the trees at the Tourist Information Centre along Highway #17. Max’s home is a popular spot with tourists and many visitors from around the world take his photograph.

Max was an idea of Mr. Elwin Palmer, a past president of the Chamber of Commerce. Max was born (built) in 1962 and celebrates his birthday officially on July 19th. He is made of mesh, steel rods, concrete and a layer of lacquer – to protect him from the brutal Northern Ontario winters.
