With a whole month before school starts and summer vacation ends, Kildonan Park offers a variety of outdoor fun, from barbecues to theatre.

Jack Lubinski, City of Winnipeg park superintendent for the North Area and Downtown, confirms that there is always space available at Kildonan Park’s barbecue pits and picnic shelters.

Since the picnic shelters are the most popular, Lubinski encourages people to book their desired sites well in advance by calling the city’s park booking office at 311.

The Witch’s Hut is a unique experience for all visitors. Open Thursday through Monday from noon to 5 p.m., and closed Tuesday and Wednesday, this whimsical gingerbread-like house brings to life the Brothers Grimm’s famous German fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel. There’s even a witch who reads stories five days a week (see inside the hut for more information).

Frequent visitors to Kildonan Park will have noticed that the Peguis Pavilion has been under construction for some time. Lubinski says the city is currently finalizing its lease with Wow! Hospitality for the opening of a fine dining restaurant.

He says there is still a lot of work to be done until the restaurant is scheduled to open, which is some time in September.

Alisa Pihulak is a community correspondent for Riverbend.
