Historic Sites of Manitoba: Dr. Jose Rizal Park and Monument (111 Sewa Crescent, Winnipeg)

Like a nearby Winnipeg thoroughfare bearing his name, this park commemorates Filipino national icon Dr. Jose P. Rizal (1861-1896) who played a key role in the country’s 1898 independence from Spanish rule. A monument and other amenities in the 3.5-acre park were installed in 2014, with the $80,920 cost being shared by the municipal government and the Order of the Knights of Rizal (Winnipeg Chapter).
