Hike the Norwood Flats with Rob - Mon a.m.

With its beautiful canopy of elm trees and well-kept unpretentious homes, Norwood Flats is like our own little  'Pleasantville'. For many years, much of this was a golf course and remained largely undeveloped until after WWII.

This event is open to Prairie Pathfinder walking club members (i.e. members who have paid an annual $25. fee). CONTACT US to request a complimentary invitation and try out the club 'for free'. Everyone is welcome to try out a hike or two before deciding to purchase a membership. Visit our website HERE.

We'll meet near the Norwood Community Club. These sunken playing fields were formed when soil was dredged out of this bowl to build up the dyke along Lyndale Drive during the great flood of 1950. Amazingly when so much of the city was under water, this low-lying area successfully escaped the ravages of the flood.

Rob Shaw, Winnipeg's most entertaining tour guide, grew up in this neighbourhood and has some fine stories. You're invited to visit his childhood haunts and explore some scenic secrets known only to the natives.

    Amazing troupers on a cool and very windy morning; pelting rain at the start; wonderful to see folks out for a walk.

    Turned out to be really enjoyable. Mother Nature decided to give us a reprieve from the wind and rain while we got a little exercise:)
