Historic Sites of Manitoba: Steinkopf Gardens (Main Street, Winnipeg)

Running in line with James Avenue in Winnipeg, the Steinkopf Gardens lies in the middle of the Manitoba Centennial Centre as a landscaped sunken garden, bordering the Centennial Concert Hall on the south and the Manitoba Museum on the north. It was named for Maitland Steinkopf, a former member of the provincial government who oversaw the development of the Centennial Centre.
