Welcome to the Bishop Grandin Greenway
Special statement from the board of Bishop Grandin Greenway
The volunteer board of Bishop Grandin Greenway Inc. acknowledges the harms of residential schools and the role Bishop Vital-Justin Grandin had in their establishment. This relationship, and the place names associated with it including Bishop Grandin Boulevard and, by extension, our greenway, are being reviewed by the City of Winnipeg's Indigenous Relations Committee and Welcoming Winnipeg committee. We strongly support the City of Winnipeg's efforts to explore the removal of Bishop Grandin from Winnipeg landmarks, in the spirit of reconciliation.
While we await the outcome of the review, we will continue our work of enhancing the greenspace that so many Winnipeggers enjoy.
Food Forest Project
The Bishop Grandin Greenway is currently looking to fund an exciting new project – an urban food forest! Food forests are small-scale gardens that incorporate principles of regenerative agriculture to mimic natural processes. Unlike conventional gardens, which need regular weeding and watering, food forests do the work for us! Their native species build healthy soils, store water, and feed and shelter animals year after year, all with minimal maintenance.
Together, we can reinstate a natural habitat of native vegetation, learn about regenerative agriculture in a beautiful outdoor setting, and enhance Winnipeg’s urban tree canopy. We are looking to raise $6,500 to cover the cost of its installment. If you would like to support the initiative, donations can be made HERE.
We will also be looking for volunteers in the summer to help with planting if you’d like another way to show your support.
Bishop Grandin Greenway is a space that has been developed by the people of the community for the people of our community. If are interested in learning more or would like to get involved Contact Us or drop us a line firstname.lastname@example.org.

The multi-use trail connects with the Trans Canada trail and will eventually join up with trails along McGillvray Blvd. and Sterling Lyon Parkway to form part of a city-wide active transportation network.

The gardens are located at the end of Eric Street, and are comprised of both raised and ground beds. In keeping with our philosophy of being kind to people and animals, we are an herbicide and pesticide free zone.
