Prairie Garden

Prairie Garden

In 1999, The Forks partnered with Nature Concervancy of Canada to establish a demonstration garden that featured Manitoba's natural heritage, in anticipation of it being a showcase for visitors at the Pan Am Games. Now, many years later, the 20,000-square-foot garden features various native tall grass prairie grasses and wildflowers such as prairie crocus, wild iris, bergamot, purple prairie clover and wild columbine, providing visitors with a glimpse into Manitoba's natural history.
