  • Plane Jane: A Walk to the Airport

    Saturday, May 7, 2022, 12:00pm

    It's a crazy idea, something you're not supposed to do. But walking to YWG, whether for pleasure or to catch a plane, is entirely possible. Gail and David have done it for the adventure of exploring places that are normally off the pedestrian road map as well as several trips with our carry-on backpacks, to fly to Europe.

  • Walk Wolseley

    Saturday, May 7, 2022, 2:00pm

    Walk Wolseley is a free, self-guided, and mostly-accessible tour in Winnipeg’s Wolseley neighbourhood. The walk will highlight the street's happenings, history and hidden gems. Weaving along Wolseley Avenue, participants will gain insight into one street's changes, constants, and charms. I invite you to join me for a walk along Wolseley!
