Upper Fort Garry park, birthplace of Winnipeg, opens in September (CBC News, July 15, 2014)

Upper Fort Garry is the place where Winnipeg and Manitoba was born and the site of significant historic events. Exciting plans are underway to reclaim and transform this treasure into a $19 million world class heritage park and interpretive centre.
The Friends of Upper Fort Garry are working on the preservation of the original location of Upper Fort Garry, located along Main Street and spanning from Broadway to Assiniboine Avenue. Through the building of Upper Fort Garry Heritage Park and Interpretive Centre, the Friends of Upper Fort Garry aim to generate interest in the history of Winnipeg, MB and Canada and to preserve a historic landmark. Highlights of this unique park include:
  • a design that demarcates the foundations of the original buildings and walls

  • the original Governor’s Gate

  • interpretive and symbolic representations of the fort and the buildings that were once enclosed within its walls

  • installations of art and other creative works within the park will represent the rich history of Upper Fort Garry

  • outdoor gathering spaces for historical events and programs

  • a modern Interpretive Centre that houses meeting facilities and exhibitions.

For more information and updates on the Park's progress, please visit the Friends of Upper Fort Garry Website here
