We always drop by the Forks when we are in Winnipeg. There's something for everyone: pleasant green space, history, interesting architecture, things for families to do, shopping, dining and just very pleasant hanging around. Don't miss it.

We visited the Forks and we loved it. The park, the shoppes, the food, the the bars. Great to walk around, relax on the bank of the river, stop for ice cream and...take pictures!
