Great place to walk , use the upper path and walk over the bridge to St. Boniface and around. Good 2km walk and then stop in the main building for a lunch.

This is most definitely one of the best attractions in Winnipeg. There is so much to do here, whether summer, spring, winter or fall. Spend the day walking along the shores of the Red River in the summer or in the winter, skate the same river on the longest winter skating trail in Canada. Take a tour through the terminal... More

Parking is not the greatest. After a 45 minute search I found a spot. My grandson and I walked outside looking at the river and playing tourist. I never get tired of visiting the Forks. So beautiful and inside the shops are so unique. Always a treasure waiting to be found somewhere in there! A must see when in Winnipeg!

I have been to the Forks several times over the years. There are always entertaining and amazing things to see throughout the year. You can try out all kinds of food from different nationalities and buy all kinds of souvenirs of Winnipeg and Manitoba. In the summer the outside is landscaped with natural plants that grow in Manitoba. In the... More

Great food, friendly service and wonderful shops. We lost track of time with all the shops! There is a fee for parking, but it isn't bad.

Lots of food choices and decent fresh veggie market. I enjoy walking the river trail, and watching the buskers and occasional concerts. It's close to Winnipeg 360, the revolving restaurant, and the Goldeye Baseball Stadium. It's the hub of the city...just wish it kept later hours. Also, there is 3 hours free parking.

Very interesting more to see than expected. Allow 4+ hrs. Will require more than one visit but worth the trips.

If you want to have a nice walk from St Boniface to Winnpeg this is the place for you and for your family! It is a historic site to learn about how the natives came to Winnpeg, the best time to come is in any season. There is so much to see or just to walk to the market and... More
