    I wasn't impressed

    by Quartzy Written Mar 15, 2006

    This park was a little too "commercial" for me. I mean you can't even park for free! We didn't stay there for long, we preferred the Assiniboine Park which is further away from the heart of downtown and is therefore much more relaxing.

    It's Winnipeg's major tourist draw, but this kind of thing has been done in countless cities who embark on 'waterfront re-development' so if you've seen one, you've seen them all. Buskers, shops selling overpriced goods, restaurants and a bit of history envelopped by a sickly bluish-green that looked fabulous in the late 80's during development (compare with downtown's Portage Place).

    All in all, still a nice place to stroll and people watch.

    For anyone visiting Winnipeg, definetly check out the Forks. I know this is possibly the first place advertised, but it is really a great place, believe me. Check it out!
    The Forks is very cultural and interesting. It has great food, and interesting shops. I love the people who go out there and sing, or dance, or play music. Its really neat.

    The Forks Market boasts a colourful array of food vendors, restaurants and boutiques. And there is a great 'balcony' where u get panoramic view to the city.
