Another photo from my Winnipeg series, this one is of the Duck Pond at Assiniboine Park. This is not the pond of my youth or even my memories of it from more recent visits to my hometown.
This is my first time seeing the newly expanded Duck Pond – more than double it’s original size. It’s amazing what they have done with it. The old duck pond had a fence around it. The new one is very interactive – note the stairs in the background that allow people to get a closer view of mother duck and her babies. There are also ramps that let you see some of the nest the geese and ducks have built.
