St. Vital


This community is nestled on the east bank of the Red River, between it and the Seine. The area’s main north-south roads, St Anne’s and St Mary’s route you quickly into the downtown, while Bishop Grandin, which bisects the community takes you quickly to southwest Winnipeg. It also includes the neighbourhoods of Island Lakes and Royalwood. 

St. Vital includes many working-class and middle-class neighbourhoods. Among them are Elm Park, Pulberry, Glenwood, Norberry, Riel, River Pointe, River Park South, Meadowood Park and Normand Park. Major streets in St. Vital include St. Mary's Road, St. Anne's Road, Bishop Grandin Boulevard, Fermor Avenue (part of the Trans-Canada Highway), and Dunkirk Drive (and its southerly extension, Dakota Street). The average sale price in these areas range from $131,000 to $900,000.

To the east of St Mary’s, curled around the large St Vital Centre, are a number of newer neighbourhoods including Meadowood Park, Nova Vista, Dakota Crossing, and River Park South. Many of the new neighbourhoods being developed here are architecturally controlled and have lakes with parks in their midst.

Island Lakes & Royalwood are new neighbourhoods south of Bishop Grandin and still evolving. In Island Lakes, the most prestigious homes are on an island in the lake, and accessed via three bridges. The Island Lakes and Royal Wood community is mostly single-family dwellings with some low density rental units around the outer edges. Average sale prices here are $443,643.  Royalwood is closer to the Seine River, it has detached homes built close to the River and forests.
