- Esplanade RielMember ofLocal CultureOutdoor EnthusiastsBudget Travelers+ 6First to ReviewJan 12, 2014
The Esplanade Riel is a pedestrian bridge that spans the Red River connecting downtown Winnipeg with St. Boniface. It is paired with a vehicular bridge, Provencher Bridge. The bridge is only one of a few in the world in that it has a restaurant (Salisbury House) on it, giving patrons an excellent view of the river and the bridge's structure. The Esplanade Riel has become a landmark and is used in many promotional materials. The bridge itself is a side-spar cable-stayed bridge.
And it's a pretty cool walk this way over to St. Boniface. I love interesting architecture and this bridge really highlights Winnipeg and the Red River.
