Historic Sites of Manitoba: Transcona Trail Monument (Plessis Road, Winnipeg)

Unveiled in October 2013 by Transcona Ward Councillor and Deputy-Mayor of Winnipeg Russ Wyatt, this 6.7-kilometer trail was dedicated to the residents of Transcona. A plaque was set along the trail at the Plessis Road railroad crossing within Kiwanis Park. The trail was built in 2010 at a cost of $2,500,000. It runs northeast from the railroad crossing at approximately 1500 Regent Avenue West, parallel to the tracks before branching off before Day Street and extending east to the Perimeter Highway.
