Windsor Park is a wonderful family community situated north of Fermor Avenue between Archibald and Lagimodiere, between the St. Boniface and Windsor Park golf courses and the CN Symington Yards. It was developed back in the ‘50s and ‘60s, and was one of Winnipeg’s first planned communities.
Windsor Park had traffic minimizing bays and streets built around convenient parks, schools (English, French, French-emersion and Christian), shopping, churches, and recreation facilities.
Windsor Park features many single attached and detached homes and apartments. It is extremely affordable for today’s younger families but boasts many residents who have lived there all their lives.
Niakwa Park was built just after Windsor Park, across Archibald and south of Windsor Park Golf Course. It is a small neighbourhood with five streets named after Tribes, paying tribute to the historic Indian Reservation that once located there. Its ‘60s style bungalows feature beautiful trees and are surrounded by parks and great bike trails for all ages.
