Historic Sites of Manitoba: Pollock Island (St. Pierre Street, Winnipeg)

The sixteen-acre Pollock property was donated to the City of Winnipeg by entrepreneur Iris Pollock in memory of her husband Edward Pollock and his mother Tina Pollock, who had originally purchased the land from the Parish of St. Norbert in 1945. The park forms an island when the nearby La Salle and Red rivers flood in spring.
