Assiniboine Park

Assiniboine Park

The vibrant burst of colours in the English and Leo Mol gardens provide the perfect setting for a stroll, hand-in-hand, while you stop to admire the bronze statues by master sculptor Leo Mol. Then throw down a picnic blanket in front of the Lyric Theatre and enjoy a live performance, or cuddle on a bench along the banks of the duck pond. If the day is a little dreary, pop into the Pavilion to see the original Winnie-the-Bear painting (and its ties to Winnie-the-Pooh) and feast on a locally inspired lunch at The Park Café

Riverwalk in Summer/Rivertrail in Winter

Riverwalk in Summer/Rivertrail in Winter

Under the summer sun, trek down the riverwalk for a distinct view of central Winnipeg. Start at the foot of the Manitoba Legislature and follow the winding river’s edge, past The Forks, until you end at the iconic bridge - Esplanade Riel. In the winter, the same waters freeze over to become the Red River Mutual Trail. Bring your skates (or rent a pair from The Forks) and glide along one of the longest naturally frozen skating trails in the world, stopping to explore the unique warming huts dotted along the way.
