History of Grant Park

Heritage Resources

The area known as Grant Park was part of the City of Winnipeg when it amalgamated with surrounding municipalities to form the City of Winnipeg which came into legal existence on January 1, 1972.

Grant Park is one of the last areas of the old City of Winnipeg to develop, much of the housing dates to the late 1940s and 1950s. There are a number of large facilities within the neighbourhood including the Pan Am Pool, Grant Park Shopping Centre, Grant Park High School, Manitoba hydro offices and power lines and the Canadian National Railway's mainline.
