We spent several hours enjoying the shops and the food. Rent some skates for $4 and enjoy as much time as you’d like.

Doesn't matter what season, there's something magical about The Forks. There is always activities, art displays, various things going on, and inside there's a plethora of shops and a great Commons to chill and have some drinks and food. Definitely recommend.

Lots to see! A walk around the park, a little shopping for something unusual, sample wines and beers from the micro brewery and so many places to have a meal all in one location. An exceptional way to spend a day during any season.

Lots to see and do here from bars to eats to culture. Nice pathway to the Legislature along the Assiniboine River. Come here in the fall to avoid mosquitoes though!

We have been to the forks several times with family. The newly renovated eating and drinking area is very cool now. You can’t go wrong with beer and good food. There is ample parking available in the parking lot. A must go place for tourists.
