An ornamental fountain and plaque in the median of Broadway west of Donald Street was presented to the City of Winnipeg in October 1970 by the M.E.P.C. Group of Companies and the Metropolitan Corporation of Greater Winnipeg to commemorate the Centenary of Manitoba and the fiftieth anniversary of the first supply of water from Shoal Lake to the metropolitan area.
The plaque was removed in 2023.
