Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bunn’s Creek Centennial Park (McIvor Avenue, Winnipeg)

This 23-acre park was created by the Rural Municipality of North Kildonan Council in 1970, following Bunn’s Creek from the Red River to Raleigh Street, with primary access along McIvor Avenue. A plaque commemorating the park was unveiled on 16 August 1980. In the summer of 2019, the former John Dickson Memorial Park monument was relocated next to the park monument.
