  • The place to visit in downtown Winnipeg, this location beautifully located along the two rivers that meet in the area offers a little bit of everything. There is history, scenery, art, recreation, shopping, food, museums, and other points of interest. The entire area is quiet accessible and is very walkable. Great views of the river and the downtown skyline. Good food offerings. Close walk to the bridge across the river for more sightseeing.

  • Good place to meet with friends. Go for a walk or grab food and drink. Tons of events here, especially in the summer. Places to sit near the river. The riverwalk goes though as well.

  • I'm not kidding when I say this but I come here up to 5times a week for at least 4-6hours! I live absolutely everything about the Forks, I love all the cute little cafés and wonderful restaurants! Not to mention the location couldn't get any better, everything is so close! The summer time is definitely my favourite time of year to come out to the Forks and have a picnic, take pictures, enjoy time with friends and family but also to experience tons of different and exciting events! There is always something new happening here, even in the wintertime! Theres lots of fun and kid friendly things to do here at the Forks and I guarantee you won't be disappointed!

  • Loved all the lights. Never have gone thru there before. Beautiful.

  • A great place to be for night light photography. The roof of the car park gives a great view of the city, and the Human Rights Museum.
