Grant Park, Winnipeg
Prior to the mid-1950s the Canadian National Railway owned railway track adjacent to Woodward Ave. When the ground sank, the builders had to refix it with cement, rocks and gravel. This was between Pembina Hwy. and Cambridge St. This track was later declared surplus and sold to the City. The tracks were removed, the ground was redone, the street expanded to include a service road and renamed Grant Ave.
Around the same time the shopping centre, and PanAm Pool were being constructed, various mid-rise and hi-rise apartment buildings were being built.
As of 2006, the population of the Grant Park neighbourhood is 2,700 people. About 18% of the people are a visible minority, and 9% of them are Aboriginal. 21% of the people are not affilited with any religions. The average household income in the area is $41,738.
