If you enjoy memorials, place to go. Great green spaces combined with historical monuments. They have just upgraded around the Vimy Ridge Memorial, and given some TLC to the memorial itself.

Nice park on the major street just west of downtown. Memorials in honour of Winnipegers who fought at Vimy Ridge. Good use of green space. A kids play area at the south end with washroom facilities available
