Historic Sites of Manitoba: William Reid Park (901 Leola Street, Winnipeg)

This Winnipeg park, located at the northwest corner of Leola Street at Whittier Avenue East, began as a tree lot used by horticulturist William Douglas Reid for the observation of birds. Playground equipment was installed in the 1950s, and Reid and his wife Mary served as playground supervisors at the Transcona site. A plaque commemorating his service to the community was installed in the park.
