It's a typical city park, nothing spectacular as far as beauty but there are a lot of good restaurants and shops. The history of it, as an ancient meeting ground for Native Americans, adds a little aura. The Human Rights Museum is on the grounds,...More

I thought after reviewing the web site it would be a historical site, did not see anything historic about it, just a lot of stores.

While here attending a conference we enjoyed The Forks and its vast array of ethnic foods, shopping and culture. Most food vendors were on the main floor with great shopping upstairs. Located on the water, its a must see when visiting Winnipeg.

The walking path around the Forks is a beautiful way to spend a few hours while enjoying the scenery and history of the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers.

I will be visiting the forks on Father's Day by boat and would like to know if there are specific docks for boat owners and are they marked or is there any specific signage. I don't want to park in a water taxi spot or be parked illegally.

Hi, My husband and I are going to be in Winnipeg for Valentine's day weekend and are looking for some things to do. One of them is visiting the Canadian Mint. I've also read about The Forks. Do you know if there are skate rentals available. Any other suggestions? Thanks for your help. Denise
