History of Crestview


Crestview was part of the City of St. James when it became part of the City of Winnipeg which came into legal existence on January 1, 1972.

The area known today as the neighbourhood of Crestview was developed in the 1960s as a reaction to the growth in population in Winnipeg during this period and mirrored similar residential expansion in nearby Westwood and St. Charles. The extensive subdivision features mostly single-family detached residences.
