Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hethrington Park / Will and Jeanine Richard Memorial Park (615 Hethrington Avenue, Winnipeg)

A park at the northwest corner of Hethrington Avenue and Daly Street South in Winnipeg, backing on to Winnipeg Transit’s Brandon Garage, was formerly known as Hethrington Park. Following the deaths of architect Willis Herman “Will” Richard and his wife Jeanine Lively, local residents and friends of the couple instigated its renaming on 23 May 2015.
