Hike Old Tuxedo

hike distance - 7 km
Assiniboine Park, our largest park at 393 acres, has been undergoing some interesting redevelopment as of late. Our hike will tour past a much improved and expanded duck pond and children's playground, on our way to a neighbourhood stroll through Old Tuxedo.

Old Tuxedo - some history - In 1913, the Town of Tuxedo was planned by a small group of men, as an exclusive and secluded development. To forestall any possibility of low or even medium-priced housing being built, a minimum value of $10,000 was imposed for each proposed dwelling.  As well, each house had to be a minimum of 15 metres back from the street and each lot needed to measure at least 23 by 40 metres. These tight building regulations essentially dictated that each house have the look of a country estate, and in fact, many were patterned after grand Tudor or Georgian style English manor houses.

This event is open to Prairie Pathfinder club members and guests. CONTACT US to request a complimentary invitation. Visit our website HERE.
