Many of Winnipeg’s neighbourhoods have a unique historic identity. Moving directly south and west from downtown you’ll encounter handsome heritage status areas featuring century-old elm canopies and stately houses, while the further you go from downtown in each direction you’ll encounter new developments where the city encroaches on the surrounding prairie.
