The gardens of the Legislative Building in Winnipeg are huge, colourful, and contain many different varieties of flowers. Some of them are arranged into a flower and rock garden, like the one in the picture, which is in support of the Canadian Troops, and is a constant monument to them.
There are about 30 acres of lawns and gardens that surround the Legislative Building in downtown Winnipeg - an impressive feat for an area in the middle of the city. Aside from the flower monument to the Canadian troops, there are also numerous statues scattered throughout the grounds of the people who worked hard to make these impressive gardens possible. The gardens are kept immaculate and there is so much effort and energy devoted to the upkeep of formal gardens of this size.
Any visitor is welcome to stroll around the grounds of the Legislative Building and to admire the gardens and the various different kinds of flowers. It would be a shame to make a visit to Winnipeg and not take some time to look at these impressive 30 acres of nature.
Manitoba's Legislative Building accommodates the legislative assembly, its committees, and the offices for the ministers and deputy ministers of all the government departments. The building was planned to be a huge and imposing symbol for the capital city and any visitor can see that when they visit there.
