Historic Sites of Manitoba: Stephen Juba Park Marker (Waterfront Drive, Winnipeg)

Stephen Juba Park was dedicated in recognition of Juba’s leadership in making this park a reality. Located between the Red River and Waterfront Drive from the foot of Lombard Avenue to the foot of James Avenue, a commemorative monument, unveiled on 14 October 1983 by Governor General Ed Schreyer, is located approximately mid-way through the Park at the foot of Bannatyne Avenue. A plaque mounted on the side of the monument lists the names of dignitaries attending the ceremony, and members of the Winnipeg City Council at that time.
