The Forks

Shall be developed as a ‘Meeting Place,’ a special and distinct, all season gathering and recreational place at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers, through a mixed use approach including recreational, historical and cultural, residential, and institutional and supportive commercial uses.

Over the past twenty years, we have witnessed the transformation of The Forks from an abandoned railyard to the popular “meeting place” it is today. This mission statement was prepared for The Forks Renewal Corporation when it was established in 1987.
