Take in the unique character of the southern edge of downtown Winnipeg, distinguished by its historic architecture, broad boulevards, and green spaces. Recent upscale housing, new building development, and Winnipeg’s favourite river trail are guaranteed to draw you in to the area.
Life in the Neighbourhood
Live within the residential character of the heart of Winnipeg. Enjoy easy access to its endless variety of shopping, first-class dining, and entertainment. Take your pet for a joyous walk along the Assiniboine River trail, or head to The Forks or Osborne Village, both just minutes away.
Active by nature
For those who love walking and cycling, there is a private path that connects to the Assiniboine River Walk and Winnipeg’s first separated bikeway runs right past the front door at 390 on the River. In winter, the river becomes an epic skating trail, extending from the Legislative Building to Waterfront Drive.
Sports fans and concert-goers love the proximity of their condo to Canada Life Centre, the Sports Hospitality Entertainment District (SHED), and Shaw Park. If you’re a fan of the arts, the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Prairie Theatre Exchange, Burton Cummings Theatre, Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre, and many other smaller live-music venues are just around the corner. And the best part? You’ll be long home before the rest of the fans have escaped parkade line-ups and traffic.
Here to Explore
Discover the oasis of fountains, gardens in Memorial Park and the striking architecture of the Legislative Building, Winnipeg Art Gallery, and the historic All Saints Church. Take a short 15-minute walk to The Forks and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. Or head to the Millennium Library, a centre for learning, thought-provoking events and intriguing public art.
A Foodie's Paradise
With its eclectic range of neighbourhood restaurants, featuring everything from fine dining to ethnic cuisine, there is no shortage of options for those nights you’re not in the mood to cook. And, from May to September, you’ll want to take advantage of the gourmet fare served up by the legendary food trucks that line Broadway on weekdays.
So Many Shoptions
Take a 15-minute stroll to Portage Place, or head to Cityplace to shop at their Farmers’ Market pop-up every other week. The Forks and Osborne Village offer more options nearby, including a grocery store, gas station, and a drug store. If you’re searching for rare finds, venture a little farther to the historic, cobblestoned streets of the Exchange District for local one-of-a-kind independent shopping.
Wonderous In Winter
The benefits of downtown living are just as incredible in the winter as in the summer. When the temperature drops, the Assiniboine River becomes one of Canada’s longest skating trails. The trail is also a showcase for one-of-a-kind warming huts designed by artists and architects from around the world. Pop-up restaurants, outdoor bars, and curling bonspiels are among the unique attractions you may encounter while skating, walking, and sledding along the trail.
A festival for everyone
From Canada Day at the Forks to the Jazz and Fringe Festivals, every year the city centre hosts more than 20 large celebrations, including ManyFest, a massive three-day street festival. And since you’re never more than a 10-minute walk away, you can spend less time hunting for parking and more time enjoying the fun.
