What We Are Up To …
The Henteleff Park Board of Directors has been very busy over the past year working through many of its responsibilities. The top of the list has been the planning and development of the Henteleff Park Interpretive Site.
This year will be the culmination of many years of work in which the Henteleff Park Board has, with the architectural firm HTFC Planning and Design, put together an architecturally designed project that will recognize and celebrate the beauty, history and geography of Henteleff Park.
Included in the Interpretive Site will be information about the Metis people of Red River, Jewish farmers of Manitoba, the geography along the Red River and the resplendent beauty of our river bottom forests.
The Board of Henteleff Park is very excited about the opening of the Henteleff Park Interpretive Centre and we invite the entire community to join us in this wonderful and important event on Saturday August 27th at 1:00PM.

Mark Your Calendars! Saturday, August 27th, 1:00 PM
Please plan on joining the Henteleff Park Foundation on Saturday, August 27 at 1:00 pm at the official opening ceremony and dedication of the new Henteleff Park Interpretive Centre.
Located at the park’s entrance and near the original homestead of the Henteleff family, the Interpretive Centre will feature a Shelter Building that will display panels of information that will lead to a new circular pathway with additional information panels, all-weather notebooks, new bench seating and landscaping.
The Interpretive Centre will be a beautiful place to relax, explore and appreciate the significance of the land that forms the roots of our community.
Learn more about the unique natural landscape, plant and bird life that inhabit the park; the major role that Métis families played in settling and developing the community; the history of market gardening in the area and the Henteleff family and the contributions of other Jewish farm families in Manitoba who contributed to the development of the community.
We have been so fortunate to have a network of dedicated volunteers who have worked tirelessly for years to make the Henteleff Park dream and the Interpretive Centre a reality.
Join us as we celebrate our future and recognize those who have made it all possible.
