The Forks National Historic Site

401-25 Forks Market Road, Winnipeg, R3C 4S8

Located in the heart of downtown Winnipeg in the province of Manitoba, Canada, the Forks National Historic Site is a meeting place for both locals and visitors alike. Lined by two rivers, with grassy areas for little ones to run and families to picnic, the Forks is a great attraction for all. Check out the various shops, boutiques, cafes, markets, playgrounds, rail cars, water boats and buses and more. The rail cars hold the history of the area, with authentic decor and a splash of contemporary details, such as a candy store located within one. Other attractions include the Children’s Museum, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and the Prairie Garden. In the winter, skate along one of the longest naturally-frozen skating trail in the world!
