Winnipeg is a impressive city that is traditional and unique

The Forks

The Forks winnipeg

The Forks is found in the heart of downtown at the junction of the Assiniboine and Red Rivers.

The Forks has been Winnipeg's meeting place for over 6,000 years and has become one of the most loved places to visit with lots to see and do there.

Early Aboriginal peoples, European fur traders, Métis buffalo hunters, Scottish settlers, riverboat workers, railway pioneers and tens of thousands of immigrants traded at The Forks.

The architecture at The Forks is very unique as the site was once a CNR railway facility. The various remaining buildings have been meticulously restored and today support a wide variety of interesting shops and services.
