The Waterfront: Sometimes we get it right and sometimes we …

The Waterfront

Every city should have that place where the hustle and bustle of our busy lives is left behind. We all need a place where carrying our cell phone, texting our friends or instagram our favorite pics just doesn’t see important. A new restaurant just opened up in Winnipeg called CIBO ‘Waterfront Cafe’. When I moved here it was the building I wanted to buy. It renovated an old building on the river and made it into a place all Winnipeggers will want to go to.

CIBO Waterfront Café As beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside. Amazing views of the River and Park. A place to relax and connect with your friends.

Winter's Wonders

Winter’s Wonders

Communities like the Exchange are meant to be walked. It fills you with a sense of calm as you walk through the park on a quiet winter day. You look for a bench to take in the sun and the views only to find it has become a resting place for the snow.

No Place to Sit

Walking amongst our ancestors. Taking a moment to remember and reflect those that have come before and those that will come after.

The Red River was the gateway to Winnipeg. The river flows to The Forks the coming together of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers, the coming together of the past, present and future and more importantly a place to value and connect with people.

Skyscrapers of Portage and Main. Pick-up your cell phone, text your neighbour as the skyscrapers take us from the past to the present. From the Exchange where it is about community, people and culture to the downtown which is about business and finance.

‘The Waterfront’ it is a place to relax and chat with your neighbour. It is a place where we have a moment to breathe and take in nature’s beauty and the architectural designs of the early 1900s. In our own fast paced lives we all need to find a place we can go to that allows the mind to be free and dream of possibilities. A place to take us back to where conversations as you laughed with your friends over a coffee or glass of wine in a little café. It is the dream of ‘The Waterfront’. It is what a neighbourhood is meant to be. Unique and something everyone from residents to visitors for whatever reason can call home.
