For the love of Little Mountain Park
One of the most wonderful green spaces in the City of Winnipeg.
Little Mountain Park is located in the North West within the R.M. of Rosser but a City of Winnipeg park.
For over 150 years the area has played a part in the growth of the City of Winnipeg. The unincorperated village of Mount Royal Manitoba was home to over 200 people. The village supplied the new city springing up on the prairies with it's first building blocks from it's quarries and farms. Gone now, we are left with a wonderful park that was created in 1965 for all to enjoy.*
The encroachment of buiness development has led to a disappearing and destruction of a Historic area and a wetland landscape that has effected water fowl nesting areas, birds of prey, at risk Leopard Frog populations, and native turtles. We at the Little Mountain Park Conservancy Group are here to provide a voice dedicated to protect the Environment and the Health and Welfare of the users of the Little Mountain Park.
We are trying to keep the park users up to date and informed with every decision regarding the well being of their pets and their valuable Green space.
Contact us today to find out how to help keep your park safe for the next generations.
Once gone, it is gone forever.
Welcome to Little Mountain Park
Hello and welcome to the Little Mountain Park Pet Owners Association web page. We've created this web page to showcase the richness of Little Mountain Park, the history of the area, the people, and our love of our pets.
For nearly 150 years the area around the park has become home to many diverse and varied groups of people. Both farming and mining from the area have played a key role in the growth of the City of Winnipeg, the R.M. of Rosser and the Province of Manitoba. Many families have come and gone over the years, all leaving their mark in our Past, the Present and building for the Future of the area. Our history section covers the passing of time, both good and not so good stories of the past.
Little Mountain is a Park for all four seasons, Whether enjoying a long leisurely stroll on a summer day or Cross Country Skiing in the winter, any season is designed for both you and your dog to take your time and enjoy.
Our little corner of the world has also served as the backdrop to the motion picture industry.Two films were shot around the quarry area and out in the Big field. We are still researching the names of the shows but I believe one to be 'Society's Child' and the other to be the 'J.J. Harper story'. Also, in 2017 the CBC shot two episodes of 'Burden of Truth'
