Walk in Assiniboine Forest

I have some time off and I was wondering if any of you would like to go for a morning walk in Assiniboine Forest on Wednesday July 3, 2013?

It's always a nice park to go for a stroll in.

If you have time, why not join me and if you like, perhaps we can go for coffee afterwards to Tim Horton's just down the street.

No $2 Meet up fee - FYI all website fees have been paid up till September 2013 and that is why there is no fee for the meet ups. So why not take advantage of that.

    I didn't make it. I bus would have dropped me off 10:30 or 11:30 neither worked. Oh well there's lots of parks with better bus systems I can walk around. Unfortunately I want to go to fort whyte but forte whyte has terrible bus location. I emailed the park to ask them how I'd get there by bus, they said the closest bus stop is 3.5 kms away, which they think is ridiculous and I should contact the city to complain, 'Why does a major winnipeg attraction not have a bus stop?'

      Actually to my understanding there are city plans to have the Winnipeg Transit RT go through that area, but there was people in the area against disturbing nature. It then passed and I hear that there was then an issue with funding. I don't know where they are at now with the situation. It will eventually happen I suppose, but I don't know when. The area where Ikea is use to be a large part of Fort Whyte, I think and so if there is a store open to the public, public transportation is bound to follow.

    When I got there, there was a helicopter circling the area. Then when Ray and I entered the park, there was a deer grazing. It was a beautiful day. I took photos.

      We just went home after the walk and I bought myself a fruit smoothie. It really hit the spot on such a hot day as today.

    The bus to get there isn't very good so if I don't make it for 11 go on without me.

    Because it is supposed to be so hot again tomorrow, and the heat isn't good for my skin I am going to have to say no to the walking. Darn!

      We will go for a walk again to the Assiniboine Forest, Linda. There are other walks at other parks coming up too. Perhaps you will join us for them in the mean time.
