Historic Sites of Manitoba: Dr. Jim Shaver Memorial Park (44 Barber Street, Winnipeg)

This Winnipeg park, also known as the Barber Street Buffer Park, was dedicated to local resident and cleric Dr. James M. “Jim” Shaver. After an adjacent field was used during construction of a new Disraeli Bridge nearby, the park received new playground facilities and improved landscaping.
