Life in the Grove / La vie dans le

Located just over the Norwood Bridge, minutes from Downtown and along the banks of the Assiniboine and Red River is Norwood Grove. A community rich in French Canadian Heritage and full of life. Find old buildings hosting new businesses, apartments and condos where a peek out the window you see tree lined streets, community events, festivals and a variety pubs, restaurants, shops and more. Cyclists can find easy parking for their bikes with the newly installed creative twist on bike racks and a stroll down the street is brightened by new LED street lamps that give a stunning glow to the many murals featured. Yep The Grove is pretty cool and changing every year with new additions and growth.

Situé juste de l’autre côté du pont Norwood, à quelques minutes du centre-ville et le long des rives des rivières Assiniboine et Rouge, vous y trouverez le Norwood Grove – une communauté vibrante, riche en histoire et en culture francophone.
