|The West End Cultural Centre
Established in 1987, the West End Cultural Centre is a venue that attracts over 30,000 people each year. They host various events, ranging from concerts to community dinners to craft workshops, and is an integral part of the West End community.
Omand’s Creek and Park
A popular spot amongst locals, the Omand Creek runs through Winnipeg and is an important habitat for fish and other wildlife. Head to the park for some fishing, go on a hike down the Omand’s Creek Greenway Trail, or just relax in the grass.
Valour Road is a street in the West End where three different Victoria Cross recipients lived. Originally called Pine Street, it was renamed Valour Road (pictured above) in 1925 to recognize the men who lived here and served in World War I. There is a memorial for these three men, Leo Clarke, Frederick William Hall, and Robert Shankland, at the corner of Sargent Avenue and Valour Road. It is an excellent place to learn about the town’s history, as well as Canadian history more broadly.
Canadian Museum for Human Rights
This national museum in Winnipeg is a must-see for all West End residents. Though you’ll have to make a trip downtown, it will be well worth it. The museum houses an extensive collection of artifacts and has many exhibitions, teaching visitors about human rights issues ranging from Rebellion & Confederation to to Empowering Women to Freedom of Expression in Latin America.
