NOW you can see the Upper side of Fort Garry history.
Upper Fort Garry Provincial Park is now open to the public, and visitors are welcome to take a stroll around the site, which is always open and has free admission, as the construction fence has been taken down.
"It's been a long time coming, and we are thrilled to see the fence removed so Upper Fort Garry Provincial Park can welcome visitors inside," Jerry Gray, the chairman of the Friends of Upper Fort Garry, said in a media statement. "A lot of hard work went into getting us here, and we look forward to this space being use as a gathering place once again."
The park is located at 100 Main St.
A mobile app for electronic devices is also up and running, organizers said, so visitors can interact and experience the park's history in a modern and interactive way. The mobile app will be officially launched at the park Aug. 14 at 10:30 a.m.
"Upper Fort Garry is the birthplace of Manitoba, and with the use of technology, including a mobile app, we will bring that story to life," said Jimm Simon, the Friends' executive director, in a media release. "A key component to the site is the ability to interact with it digitally, and we now have that capability."
