Join us on Saturday, May 27 at 11:00 a.m. or Sunday, May 28 at 1:00 p.m. for a special Doors Open walking tour, Essar Anything to See Here?

On this tour we are in a quiet little gem of a neighbourhood. We will hear the ‘tale of two bridg
es’, a history of the Kildonan Canoe Club circa 1930, the North Kildonan Municipality office and the Reeve S.R. Henderson who is the namesake of Henderson Hwy. We will end with a short walk under Kildonan Settler Bridge to the north side where we will see the outlet of McLeod Creek, our ‘hidden areas waterway', into the mighty Red River.

The tour meetin
