Historic Sites of Manitoba: Elva Fletcher Way (Osborne Street, Winnipeg)

City of Winnipeg and Province of Manitoba plaques, both dedicated 19 August 1990, commemorate the official opening of Elva Fletcher Way, a park located at the northwest corner of Osborne Street and Jubilee Avenue. The plaques are located on a long low retaining wall in the park. Elva Fletcher was a long-time resident and volunteer in the area.

An enclosure in the park mimics an old streetcar. Beside it is a set of three interpretive plaques describing the development of River Park, a large recreational facility, and the neighbourhood in which it was located.
