Historic Sites of Manitoba: Carey Park (Kingston Row, Winnipeg)

As the Windsor Park residential neighbourhood of Winnipeg developed around it, this 1.84-acre site at the southeast corner of Kingston Row and Killarney Street was left undeveloped as a public park. It was named posthumously, sometime between 1960 and 1988, for local municipal official and naturalist Harold Eric Carey.
