Historic Sites of Manitoba: Morley R. Kare Park (115 North Meadow Road, Winnipeg)

Located in Winnipeg on land once owned by the Kare family as a dairy farm, the park was posthumously named for sensory researcher Morley Richard Kare in late July 1991. A founding plaque was installed at an outlook at the centre of the park. In 2005, a plaque commemorating the park’s landscape and amenity revitalization was installed at its northeastern entrance.
