About the Event

Join us for a free tour of Niakwa Park. Located north of Fermor Avenue, south of the Windsor Park Golf Course and adjacent to the Seine River, Niakwa Park is a park-like neighbourhood developed in the 1950s. The area’s homes were designed by Nicola Zunic, a 1950 graduate of the University of Manitoba School of Architecture.

Niakwa Park was deemed a “High Class” project and described as “the most exclusive development in Western Canada” containing “Manitoba’s No. 1 Home” - a building that was featured in the August 1956 issue of Canadian Homes and Gardens.

This tour follows a wheelchair and stroller accessible route.
