Esplanade Riel Pedestrian Bridge, Winnipeg, Canada

Winnipeg’s iconic pedestrian bridge with it’s seasonal restaurant.  The Esplanade Riel Bridge crosses the Red River in downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba.  It’s probably become the city’s most recognizable modern architectural structure, until the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is completed, that is.

In previous years , the Assiniboine River ice skating trail has run all the way to the bridge, but frazil ice prevented full completion this past winter.  The ice skating trail was extended further south down the Red, to make up for the shortfall.
