River Heights

Winnipeg, Manitoba

Description provided by Editors

The street was named for a long-established private girls school which still lies at its eastern end. Originally, Academy Road was a streetcar route running through the River Heights residential area. It is now one of the city’s most desirable retail locations due to its proximity to one of the city’s highest-income neighbourhoods. Immediately north of Academy is the elegant tree and mansion-lined Wellington Crescent. The Crescent is home to many prominent Winnipeg families.
