Lots to see and do here from bars to eats to culture. Nice pathway to the Legislature along the Assiniboine River. Come here in the fall to avoid mosquitoes though!

We have been to the forks several times with family. The newly renovated eating and drinking area is very cool now. You can’t go wrong with beer and good food. There is ample parking available in the parking lot. A must go place for tourists.

Great walking trail along the Red River. Good views of the other side of the city. The skating path around the site is a great idea and very enjoyable to walk around in the evening when the trees are lit up.

We go to the Forks many times each year. A very much appreciated respite from the downtown area (even though it is downtown). At the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine rivers the area is both a park and an interesting mix of restaurants, museums,...More

You can walk it or drive. There is a cost for parking at the Forks, although there are some parking spots that are free. We found one when we were there, but it was just lucky we got it. The museum will cost you, but it is... More
