Explore U of M / Fort Richmond on a JANE'S WALK

Join tour hosts Michelle Richard, Univ of MB Campus Planner AND Janice Lukes, Wpg Trails Assoc, on the Communities, the Campus & the Re-Generation Tour. Next to downtown, the University of Manitoba is the second most commuted to destination in the City of Winnipeg. Take a walk on the wild side through the residential communities of Fort Richmond and University Heights which sandwich the U of M Campus. Experience the walkability in the communities which surround the University of Manitoba. Walk through Smart Park; a ‘Community of Innovators’, peruse the sparkling Investors Group Field, new home to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, and stroll on the trails of what was once the prestigious Southwood Golf Course.

The communities and the campus are undergoing a transformation –  a re-generation. Michelle and Janice will provide an in-depth overview of what is currently underway in both the communities and on Campus.

    Very well organized! It wasn't easy to dodge all those MS walkers, but we managed nicely. The leaders were well informed and the weather, splendid! Well worth it. Thanks.........
