Review: FortWhyte Alive
While visiting Winnipeg in winter, I decided to go to FortWhyte Alive and have a look, since it’s pretty well known. To my disappointment, I didn’t really find anything interesting to see. Prairie, lakes, forest, and wetlands with boardwalks are some attractions there, but not really unique. The park is open year round and requires admissions tickets. The only thing that interests me somewhat is the wild bisons grazing on the grass field.
FortWhyte Alive is located in the southwest corner of Winnipeg. I was very surprised by all those new residential and commercial development going on in this corner of the city. I thought FortWhyte Alive is near the farm land, so I didn’t expect to see so many cars, people, and houses here! Winnipeg’s first IKEA store was just open near here in year 2012. To the east of FortWhyte Alive is University of Manitoba, and to the north is the famous Assiniboine Park. I guess this area holds great future for real estate!
