This Winnipeg park was dedicated on 22 October 1998 in honour of Donald Ira “Don” Gerrie, a long-time Riverview resident and Winnipeg municipal councillor (1974-1989). The limestone base of a commemorative plaque came from the former King George Hospital Nurses’ Residence. The Manitoba Canoe and Kayak Centre is located within the park.
