Visit The Forks National Historic Site of Canada represents the site where two rivers meet, a place of commerce for aboriginals 6,000 years ago. The area was also used by fur trappers, and now welcomes contemporary Canadians. Explore the 9 acre (3.6 ha) riverside park, taking in interactive exhibits, sculptures, and hiking trails. Take children to the themed park, depicting the eras of cultural meetings, or hire a tour guide if you'd like a deeper understanding of the 6,000-year history of the area. Beyond the historical site, you'll discover a myriad of things to do including shopping, dining, and museums.

  • Fun place to visit and walk along the river and see the shops and restaurants.
  • Very nice park, lots of trees and green spaces sbd outdoor concerta. My only criticism would be the children's playstructure was not made of durable materials (plastic broken in some places). A great place to unwind and take in mother nature.
  • Great place to go for a walk and find out about some history as well
  • Interesting place to spend a weekend with family!
  • Nice public space
