Historic Sites of Manitoba: Riding Park School No. 2244 (RM of Riding Mountain West)

The Riding Park School District was established formally in March 1934. A school building operated on the northeast quarter of 1-24-27 west of the Principal Meridian in the Rural Municipality of Riding Mountain West. It closed in 1966 and thereafter its remaining students were transported by bus to Inglis Consolidated School No. 2458. The former school building is no longer present at the site but a metal sign commemorates it.
