hike distance - 8 km Our route takes us out on the Churchill Parkway which runs along the west bank of the Red River all the way from the Norwood Bridge down a long narrow strip of green space called Churchill Drive Park to Cockburn Street. We'll explore the north half of the parkway. Beginning at the Forks, we cross the Historic Rail Bridge to South Point. We then take the stairs down from the Norwood Bridge to pass under the bridge and connect up to the Churchill Parkway which leads us south to the attractive neighbourhood of Riverview.
some history -
Until the second World War, most of the Riverview area was taken up with the River Park carnival and exhibition grounds. For Winnipeggers this was the just the place for a day’s outing. The privately owned River Park had a great assortment of attractions including a zoo with lions and tigers, a miniature train, and a roller coaster.
