Located at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine rivers, The Forks has been a meeting place that began with First Nations peoples, followed by European traders and later with rail yards and surges of immigration. The history of The Forks tells the dynamic tale of how Winnipeg grew into the beating heart of our continent.
Today, The Forks is still Winnipeg's place to be. This national historic site is free for you to wander through, with plenty of family activities happening all summer.
