Esplanade Riel pedestrian bridge is remarkable from an architectural point of view, and offers a panoramic view of the most impressive attractions of our city. This structure links the poetry of the French Quarter to Winnipeg’s downtown area, and the enticing charm of The Forks. This bridge retraces the alignment of the original Provencher bridge which connected Provencher Boulevard to Broadway Boulevard, the commercial link between the City of Winnipeg and St. Boniface. Esplanade Riel’s concept is all about a vibrant city proud of its history and heritage and confident in its future.
