Historic Sites of Manitoba: Victoria Jason Park (255 Redonda Street, Winnipeg)

Formerly known as Crocus Park, this Winnipeg park was renamed in 2004 in commemoration of Transcona resident and adventurer Victoria Jason, the first woman to kayak the Northwest Passage. Following the Winnipeg parks renewal in 2006, a plaque was dedicated by Transcona Ward Councillor Russ Wyatt, Transcona MLA Daryl Reid, and Friends of the Victoria Jason Park.
