About The Forks National Historic Site

The Forks National Historic Site

Come to The Forks and walk in footsteps formed by the leather moccasins of the Indigenous peoples who fished and camped here thousands of years ago; the boots of fur trappers and traders of the North West and Hudson’s Bay Companies; and the flip-flops of today’s urban explorers. Stroll the river banks and understand the connection between these flowing waters and the flow of people and trade goods that came from around the globe, and ultimately changed the Canadian west.

Discover world-class public art, a life-size “pop-up book” of The Forks history in the Adventure Park, and a year-round slate of exciting events. Tap your toes as a band performs a free afternoon concert, learn authentic Indigenous skills at a tipi teaching class, hop aboard the Countess of Dufferin “play park” train and imagine travelling the endless prairies as a newcomer from Eastern Europe on your way to a brand new life.
