Where to find a wild polar bear in a Winnipeg alley

Posted November 10, 2017 | Author Austin

Wolseley is one of the most unique areas in Winnipeg to walk around in, both during the summer and winter months. The neighbourhood, architecture and the murals are what make this area of the city so unique. However, there is a beautiful new addition to the area and it’s something that will transport you right up to northern Manitoba. Let’s go for a walk down Kal Barteski’s Back Alley Arctic!

You can find it in the alley between Canora and Ethelbert Street, situated in the section between Wolseley and Westminster Avenue.
