Central Park is one of four pioneer green spaces created by the City of Winnipeg’s Public Parks Board, established in 1893 in a movement to add “breathing space” to Winnipeg’s urban environment. In that year, the city bought and began development of Fort Rouge Park, Central Park, St. John’s Park, and Victoria Park.

As one of Winnipeg’s oldest neighbourhoods, Central Park is home to many historical sites. Directly adjacent to the park itself are Waddell Fountain and Knox Church, both provincially designated historical sites. Several surrounding residential buildings—the Bernard House, Hoover & Town Duplex, and Warwick Apartments—are municipally designated sites that showcase the architecture and heritage of their time.

Take a guided tour of Central Park and soak up its rich history on Historic Places Day, or stop by anytime to take a look for yourself!
