GREAT NEWS! The Henteleff Park Interpretive Area is Becoming a Reality!

The Henteleff Park Interpretive Area to be constructed at Henteleff Park between the parking lot and St.Mary`s Rd. is becoming a reality.

A Request for a Project Proposal was made to Architectural and Design firms in Manitoba. After considering the many excellent proposals our Jury selected HTFC Planning and Design of Winnipeg as designers and managers of the Project, with Glen Manning as its partner in Charge.

The content area will, through a variety of means interpret and tell the stories of 4 themes:

• The park’s natural roots,
• Metis roots,
• Market garden roots,
• and Henteleff family roots as well as other Jewish farmers in Manitoba.

This wonderful project, which will provide to all a unique look at largely untold and important aspects of our history, is a work in progress. In addition to interpretive elements, the project will provide accessible site infrastructure as well as a visitor amenity such as a shelter.

Wendy Molnar of Cultural Visions Consulting is in charge of interpretive content development .
The draft site development plan has been submitted by HTFC to the City of Winnipeg for its consideration. We hope to commence construction beginning of April 2015 and to have a grand opening the beginning of August 2015. More updates will follow from time to time and posted on our website at

HPF Foundation is a registered charity and all donations to this project are most welcomed and will be recognized. Be part of this extraordinary project!

Reverencing the Earth Famland Legacies

By Donald Sutherland – Prairie Messenger, March 12, 2014

The centuries-old relentless persecution of Jews living in Russia and Europe reached a feverish pitch during the Kiev Pogrom in 1905. Facing certain death, the Henteleff family sought safety in Canada in 1907, eventually settling in 1924 on a 40-acre parcel of land in St. Vital, Man., situated along the Red River …

    Around 75 individuals got down and dirty recently at Henteleff Park during an annual spring tree planting event. Key organizer and local resident Mark Zoldy said approximately 100 trees were planted at the park, located at 1964 St. Mary’s Rd., on June 15. Refreshments were served, courtesy of Gunn’s Bakery, and the project was supported by the Walmart-Evergreen Green Grant Program, Zoldy said.

    The event was sandwiched between an early morning birding hike, led by Nature Manitoba members Gord and Jaye Grieef, when 17 individuals identified 26 species of bird, and the Henteleff Park Foundation’s annual general meeting.
