Grant Park

Grant Park is a charming, lively community and is the southern part of one of Winnipeg’s most historic neighbourhoods, Crescentwood. The area serves as a magnet for those seeking convenience and connectivity. Situated within close proximity to downtown Winnipeg and surrounded by major thoroughfares, residents enjoy effortless access to an array of services, entertainment options, and short commutes to work.


Homes in Grant Park range in style and age, with the majority of construction occurring from the 1920s to the 1950s. The most common type of dwelling here is a bungalow around 1,000 square feet on a sizable lot. It is also quite common to find post-war era 1.5 to 2-storey homes in the area. The neighborhood primarily consists of single-family detached homes, apartment-style condos, and rental apartments.

Due to the desirability of the area, you will also notice some newer developments, including the subdivision of larger lots and the construction of new homes.


Grant Park is within the Winnipeg School Division’s catchment, offering English, French Dual Track, and French Milieu programs.

Harrow School serves Kindergarten to Grade Six students in English. Children from the area bordered by Poseidon Bay, Taylor Avenue, and Cambridge Street attend Montrose School for Kindergarten to Grade Six, then move on to Grant Park High School for middle and high school.

J. B. Mitchell School is a Kindergarten to Grade Six French Dual Track school serving the entire community. Students continue to École River Heights School for middle years and École Secondaire Kelvin High School.

For French Milieu programs, students can start at École Lavérendrye, proceed to Collège Churchill High School, or attend École Précieux-Sang for elementary, then Collège Louis-Riel for high school under Division Scolaire Franco-Manitobaine (DSFM).
