Just south of downtown on Portage Avenue is the robust neighbourhood of Fort Garry. It contains some of the city’s most-expensive homes on South Drive, which hugs the Red River and leads to private school St. John’s Ravenscourt, while just across the street from South Drive is the unique neighbourhood of Wildwood Park, where everyone’s backyards are interconnected with no roads nor cars infiltrating the whimsical woodlands. The main thoroughfare for the area is the Pembina Strip. It contains all manner of cuisine in its distinct strip malls including some of the city’s best Chinese and Korean joints.
Pembina also leads you to the huge University of Manitoba Campus, home to Investors Group Field where the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Valour FC play, along with all massive stadium shows. Neigbourhoods run alongside both sides of Pembina offering a range of housing prices from bungalows in Fort Garry proper, to large multi-storey homes in the older area of Whyte Ridge and the new ever-expanding burbs of Bridgewater, to farm-style abodes down in St. Norbert, where the city meets the prairie. Due to the constant growth of the Bridgewater area, more and more amenities like restaurants and shopping continue to pop up, however the area lacks primary and secondary schools.
