AMBER TRAILS



Amber Trails is a diverse, family-friendly neighbourhood in the northwest quadrant of Winnipeg. It offers nearly 40 acres of landscaped parks and recreation areas as well as an intertwining trail system that connects the three man-made lakes, parks and schools.  The area is bordered by Leila Avenue on the south, Pipeline Road on the east, Mosselle Drive and Bitterfield Drive to the north and Amberstone Road to the West. The community is only three kilometers away from the Perimeter Highway, making it an ideal spot for those that like to escape the City to lake country.
