Consultation has concluded

More information on the Crescentwood-Enderton Park Heritage Conservation District and other districts available on the Heritage Conservation District webpage.

Introduction

The Crescentwood-Enderton Park neighbourhood has a unique history and an outstanding collection of heritage homes and buildings, many of which were built between 1900 and 1914. For years, area residents have been advocating for heritage conservation district (HCD) status. HCDs conserve areas of special architectural and historical significance and manage future changes within the district boundaries.


Background

There are three steps in the process of establishing a heritage conservation district:

  • Official nomination (this occurred on June 6, 2019)
  • Development of an HCD study.
  • Development of an HCD plan, which could lead to official designation.

The HCD plan was approved by City Council on March 23, 2023.

History and Evolution of the Area

BACKGROUND

Information about the History and Evolution of this area can be found in the presentation provided at the property owners’ meeting on February 26, 2020. View the February 26, 2020 presentation.

WHAT WE HEARD

Participants at the meeting were asked to share any further information, stories and thoughts about the history and evolution of the Crescentwood area at the table conversations. Some of the notable items that came forward included:

  • Discussions about the former Fortune home (393 Wellington Crescent) and the tragic loss of family members with the sinking of the Titanic
  • Identification of several properties with original carriage buildings that are now used as residences or garages 
  • Acknowledgement that pre-development history is important. Fur trade trails once existed along this stretch of the Assiniboine River riverbank 

Do you have any interesting stories you would like to share about the history of the area? (Note: these stories will be made public, but only your username will be published.)

Thank you for sharing your story with us.

    Peanut Park

    by CharlesF, almost 4 years ago

    The Friends of Peanut Park, a neighbourhood group that has "adopted" Enderton Park from the City of Winnipeg, have gathered some of the old history of the park and area at; http://peanutpark.ca/history/

    We have also recorded our progress in refurbishing the park at: http://peanutpark.ca/accomplishments/

    I notice that the information in "accomplishments" is rather out of date; I will try to update it over the summer, as it is my responsibility to maintain the website.
