Walking bridge.

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.

One of the first things to greet you on the other side of the bridge is this giant elm tree. Better know as the Grandma tree.

Strait ahead from the foot of the bridge is this view of the Lyric Theater, The Pavilion and the Toboggan Hill.  Part of the Grandma tree can be seen to the right.

A big part of the park is it's many trails often used by dog owners.

Available for dog owners just in case you forgot to bring your own are these Teddy Bags.
