Historic Sites of Manitoba: Leslie Park Monument (Thatcher Drive, Winnipeg)

This monument at the intersection of Thatcher Drive and University Crescent in Winnipeg, partially obscured by thick vegetation, was erected around 1964 by Robert Howard “Bob” Leslie of the B. Leslie Real Estate and Development Company to mark the entrance to his Leslie Park residential subdivision. Houses in the subdivision were designed by the architectural firm of Pratt Lindgren and Associates.
