Sign beside the pad reads:
"Republic of St. Paul (Stargate Alpha). The area under the World's First UFO Landing Pad was designated international by the Town of St. Paul as a symbol of our faith that mankind will maintain the outer universe free from national wars and strife. That future travel in space will be safe for all intergalactic beings, all visitors from earth or otherwise are welcome to this territory and to the Town of St. Paul."

There is a map of Canada embossed in the centre of the back stop of the Landing pad. The map is made of stones that were provided by each province of Canada. It has six 30 inch concrete pylons that make up the main column.

The plans and specifications were done at no cost and cement was donated. As a result, the project was realized without any financial commitment from the Town.

An adjoining tourist information centre was opened in 1993.
