Batoche National Historic Site
The East Village was the central commercial area for the Batoche community. The location of original foundations of the stores, the East Village continues to be a place of gathering! Enjoy the beautiful vistas of the river from the viewing platform, and gain an appreciation for the narrow river lots that were a key element in the establishment of the community.
Enjoy a picnic at the family garden and play area, as you learn about the vast network of family and trade ties that bound a people together in the Canadian west. Imagine creaking red river carts making their way across the prairies as they travel along the Carlton Trail and across the Canadian prairies. A short stroll from the family garden and play area is the original location of the ferry crossing, which connected the east and west sides of the river.
