“Outdoor music”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

As a Manitoban I am already missing the summer sunshine and all the fun that goes along with it. I can't wait to eat a hotdog on a park bench in Old Market Square again and listen to the local musicians busking in the area. This is a favorite thing of mine to do in the middle of a busy work day, it makes for a nice break.

“Real name is "Nivsky Square'”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Used to be nice. I had a studio there, which was used in the film "Shall we Dance" with R. Gere,J.Lo and S. Sarandon. Due to Tax credits. But not too exciting for the actors. Since then, CCTV is every where- so artists tend to go elsewhere to talk. New Cooking school is finished, and Red River Community College is nearby. The city tore down the main stage.... I could go on... but I will stop here.

“Lots to see”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

You can spend a better part of a day just walking around and checking out all of the unique shops and eateries. Park on one of the streets and then go explore!

“Exchange District park”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

During the period of the year where weather is less than perfect this location gives an impression of non-use. The surrounding area with its galleries, boutiques, restaurants, and commercial establishments may be fine during the day, but at night is not where one really wants to be. In order to enhance attendance it would be necessary to have street patrols to increase the sense of personal security. Like much of the downtown area safety is becoming an ever increasing issue in Winnipeg's downtown core.
