La Barrière Parc

La Barrière Park is not located in the Waverley West ward, but is a nature lover’s paradise located just minutes away and waiting to be discovered by the growing population of South Winnipeg! I have been exploring this park for the past 20 years and it still holds many surprises for myself and my family!  This 323 acre (84 hectares) park hugs the banks of the La Salle River, just outside the southern edge of the City of Winnipeg. See Discover La Barrière Parc for directions and further details about the park’s amenities.
