The Esplanade Riel cable-stayed bridge has become a Winnipeg landmark since opening in 2003. It was named after Louis Riel, the founder of Manitoba. The pedestrian-only, white bridge spans 646 feet over the Red River to connect downtown with the French community of Saint Boniface. In the foreground are some of the 2,015 blue flags from the Cool Gardens 2015 project. Each flag had an imprint of a person’s face and a quick description of what “cool” means to them. It was located in the Citizen Garden at The Forks Park.
