There are many different things to do here. There is the market with some shops and many different food places. If that's not your thing then you stroll along the different trails and paths. There are water taxis that go down the river.

While here attending a conference we enjoyed The Forks and its vast array of ethnic foods, shopping and culture. Most food vendors were on the main floor with great shopping upstairs. Located on the water, its a must see when visiting Winnipeg.

The walking path around the Forks is a beautiful way to spend a few hours while enjoying the scenery and history of the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers.

Nice gathering place with lots of eating & drinking options around, and space for concerts and other events. It's by the river and has a pleasant atmosphere.

I will be visiting the forks on Father's Day by boat and would like to know if there are specific docks for boat owners and are they marked or is there any specific signage. I don't want to park in a water taxi spot or be parked illegally.

Hi, My husband and I are going to be in Winnipeg for Valentine's day weekend and are looking for some things to do. One of them is visiting the Canadian Mint. I've also read about The Forks. Do you know if there are skate rentals available. Any other suggestions? Thanks for your help. Denise
