    We hadn't been to the Forks in several years and things have certainly changed. Lots of interesting little unique shops and different food court choices. At one time there were some very high end restaurants in The Forks but there are fewer today. Still a good selection from fast food to Tapas.

    This is part of Assiniboine Park. So many things to experience that at least a full day should be taken or spread over several days. Easily accessible by public transit. Pack a lunch or enjoy a snack at Joe Black Cafe just before entering the park from Portage. Once on site rent a bike or stroll the grounds. Free entrance. A wonderful Winnipeg gem.

    The mall is fairly easy to navigate, stores are easy to find. Layout is simple as well and it wasn't too crowded on a Friday evening.

    This is possibly the best museum on the Prairies for anyone interested in Métis history. The artifacts alone are enough to draw you in. Where else would you find a lock of Louis Riel’s hair? We spent over an hour, poring over each plaque and description that accompanied the displays. It was a remarkable lesson in Canadian history, with information that appeals to all age groups.

    As with most businesses at this time, masks were mandatory and there was ample hand sanitizer around the building. Admission is by donation, which you are able to make in the quaint gift shop. I picked up some very unique items at the shop. You can even purchase St. Boniface hand sanitizer! And I did. I would definitely return for another visit the next time I am in Winnipeg.

    I visited Portage Place a couple of times over my 4 days in Winnipeg. On the positive side there is free. WiFi (in the food court), it’s nit overly busy and there is a really cool clock. Otherwise the shops are a bit hit and miss and there are a few vagrants. Not a massive shopping mall but it’s convenient being centre of the city.

    When I lived in the nearby neighbourhood, Garden City Shopping Centre was thought to be one of the premiere malls in the city. Overt the years, a lot of changes have taken place, and most of them have not been positive. Stores have come and gone and now there are only a few anchor stores: Winners, Sears and Canadian Tire.

    The theatres are now gone and the only real eatery is Smitty's with a so-so food court. There are some interesting shopping choices: a huge Dollarama, Claire's Accessories, Ardene, Rickis, Warehouse One, an eyeglass place, several hair salons, shoe store and showcase (seen it on TV). On my recent visit, however, a major jewellery store was going out of business, so it did look like another downturn is coming to the mall.

    There are some pluses; Christmas at Garden City is a festive time and the occasional railroad model display intersperse with the hallway kiosks. It used "... ta' be a contender ..."

    This mall has been an embarrassment since the 80.s. Owned by someone who keeps putting the rent up and chasing people out even though there is no warranting rent raised EVER. This is one of those places you have to beg tenants to stay, not increase rent. With the grocery store now gone because of this, there is simply no reason to go except for Blaine's music store, he will order anything for you. As for the rest, there is a substandard insurance company, and a few other overpriced stores, a drug store and a bank. There is a pizza place, if you can call it that and a Subway. Oma's bakeshop is good, but prices are out of this world. If they don't get a grocery store in there soon, it's going to die completely. Time for management to step up !

    I have been to Kildonan Place since I was 3 or younger, and my first movie I saw was Barney the Movie at the KP Famous Players, so needless to say I love this mall.

    While it saddens me that the old theatre is closing and a big multi-entertainment jumbo-tron theatre is being placed where the old Sears was, and that the last Arby's is no more, I still like this mall.

    Recently I came here to see if Claires was reopened, and it was. I was able to get a replacement headband, as during covid, the one I previously had wore down and was being held together by tape.
    I also was able to find a copy of The Great Gatsby from 2013 at Sunrise Records.

    All in all, I like this mall.

    It's always a neat place to go. The Plug In Gallery in the Buhler Centre is a tiny gallery but has some interesting and provocative exhibitions. If you are taking in the Winnipeg Art Gallery next door, drop in; it's free, and be surprised. A small library is also attached to the gallery.

    Purchase all your last minute items at the Duty Free shop at the airport. I found the prices were better than in town such as the maple syrup and maple cookies.

    The C2 Centre for Craft is a delightful museum/ Gallery/ gift shop/creative space, only a block from Portage Avenue, displaying, teaching, selling many different craft handcrafted items. It small gem is a bright spacious place welcoming visitors of all ages. There are changing historic and contemporary exhibits, a library with hundreds of books on how to, plus books on the work of many excellent craftspeople in many different genres. It offers workshops, opportunities to hands on try out a craft ( all ages), And the small shop features quality hand crafted pottery, wood work, fabric pieces, jewellery and more. Beautiful, true Manitoba souvenirs!

    Covid has meant the library snd Maker’s Corner are temporarily out of bounds, but staff are available to answer many questions. Hours are also limited. Phone ahead.

    Four of us, adults, went to see the fabulous retrospective of the work of Marilyn Stuart Stothers at this lovely museum/gallery. The work covers many years of exploration by Marilyn of designing and working with fabrics to produce her extremely creative pieces. These are not your granny’s quilts!
