Parks Canada Places in and around Winnipeg

Parks Canada administers various national historic sites in the greater Winnipeg area, each with its own unique contribution to the story of Canada.

Experience Lower Fort Garry, North America’s only restored stone fort from the fur trade era. Buildings and walls have stood on the bank of the Red River for over 180 years. Witness how The Forks, at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine rivers, continues to be a meeting place for over 6,000 years. Learn the story of Métis leader and a founder of Manitoba, Louis Riel, at Riel House. Visit St. Andrew's Rectory, an example of mid 19th-century Red River architecture.


Be a part of our program! Parks Canada offers a diversity of volunteer activities and reaches many volunteers with different interests.
