Chapter 8: Southern Hamlets, Villages, and Towns

8.24: Woodlands

Woodlands in the Interlake Region northwest of Winnipeg is another settlement with a road pattern dictated by the railway line. The CN line used to run southeast/northwest in this area. It no longer exists, but indication of its former route can be seen 1. A wide road 2 runs parallel to it in the northeast and other roads are parallel, and at right angles, to the railway and the road. PTH 6 3 running out of Winnipeg via the Interlake to northern Manitoba takes a slight bend 4 around what was a railway siding (the road came after the railway). Four large buildings exist in this small community; the largest 5 is probably a school. A T-shaped building in the centre 6 is probably a hospital or a senior citizens home, and in the northwest a long narrow building 7 probably houses a curling rink.
