Not gonna lie. I kinda want to jump into it and see if it works. But only when no one is looking because if it doesn't work, I don't want to end up on Fail Army.

There's a new installation in Victoria Park in the Old West End (Riverheard) neighbourhood of the city. You can see it there at the top of the first hill:



Let's take a closer look...



Like everything else here, it's dedicated to the Royal Newfoundland Regiment. It's a combination of broze death masks of living descendants of WWI dead and veterans.

My father was mugged in that park when he was 17. When I was in boot camp, some of our outdoor workouts were there. A friend's former coworkers are always there smoking weed. And this statue. That's the overall atmosphere of Victoria Park in my experience.

The belvedere is a 100 metre long walkway suspended in the river forest canopy off the Tache Promenade. It was envisioned to provide a unique perspective on the river landscape, and capture one of the most spectacular views in Winnipeg, framing the Canadian Museum of Human Rights, Esplanade Riel, The Forks, and the downtown skyline.
