2022 is the Year of the Garden in Canada, and Winnipeg’s newest green gem is The Gardens at The Leaf, located in Assiniboine Park. Featuring six unique outdoor areas, The Leaf is an expansive new outdoor garden which will continue to evolve as the greenery matures each season. The six new outdoor areas are The Indigenous Peoples Garden, created by Indigenous landscape and architectural designers in collaboration with Indigenous elders and community leaders; Kitchen Garden, which focuses on active gardening with edible plants like vegetables, fruits and herbs; Seasonal Garden, a garden centered around the four-season Manitoba experience, celebrating change with perennial plants; Sensory Garden, which features garden beds with colorful, aromatic and tactile plants, tall prairie grass and hills with rock steps to climb; Performance Garden, an outdoor stage surrounded by tiered cement offering levels of grassy seating around the stage; and The Grove, a space showcasing impressively tall trees lining beautiful scenic paths.

 

Finally, CURRENT Winnipeg launches its new, weekend-long festival experience at The Forks, Aug. 12–14. This sophisticated summer experience highlights the city’s thriving drinks, music, visual art and culinary scenes.
