Corydon Avenue, best explored by foot, is a major street named after Corydon Partlow Brown, a member of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba from 1878 to 1888. Also known as Route 95 it runs west from Pembina Highway to Assiniboine Park where it then becomes Roblin Blvd. For its entire length, Corydon Avenue is four lanes wide with a speed limit of 50 km/h.

The street is home to Winnipeg's Little Italy District, one of the few vibrant and pedestrian friendly areas of the city.

Corydon Avenue is known as Manitoba's largest outdoor shopping centre and one of the city's hot spots for shopping, dining or killing an afternoon of people-watching at one of the many sidewalk cafes dotting the avenue. Savor the delicious smells wafting from bakeries and restaurants along the tree-lined streets, as you window-shop the boutiques that offer everything from fine jewelry and antiques to designer clothing and imported chocolates.
