Love the forks market. It’s evolved over the last little while to be more interesting and a much cleaner, modern vibe. Great place to check out with family or just to hang out in the evening.

Parking is easy to find. Great place to visit and view the heart of Winnipeg's birthplace. Bring a good pair of shoes, lots of walking on the side of the rivers is pleasant and refresing.

I love The Forks all year long but especially in the summer. As a Winnipeg resident, I bike to the area often. There are continuous activities all year long and something for everyone. During the summer, there are regular aboriginal events in The Sacred Circle,...More
