This week I’m checking out the walking bridge that crosses over the Assiniboine River and goes into the park. Everything is covered in freshly fallen snow from last night.
The park is well know for it’s many nature trails. I explored the Assiniboine Pathway that is part of a trail that goes right across Canada known as the Canada trail.
Temp -10°C Feels like -12°C.
A view of the bridge as you approach it.
Snow covered trees at the foot of the bridge.
Crossing the bridge.
A view from the bridge.
One of the first things to greet you on the other side of the bridge is this giant tree, better known as the Grandma Elm.
The legend of Grandma Elm.
Nobody will be using the bench for a while.
Straight ahead from the foot of the bridge is this view of the Lyric Theater, The Pavilion and the toboggan hill
Part of the Grandma Elm can be seen to the right.
A big part of the park is it’s many trails often used by dog owners.
These Teddy Bags are available for dog owners just in case you forgot to bring your own.
On the other side of the fence on the left is the English Garden and Leo Mol Sculpture Garden.
I see you hiding behind that tree.
If you keep walking you will eventually be walking past the zoo.
A look at some of the construction work for the zoo expansion.

That’s all for this week. I hope you enjoyed taking a nature walk on part of the Trans Canada Trail with me.
Until next week…
