The Esplanade Riel is a pedestrian bridge located in Winnipeg, Manitoba designed by Étienne Gaboury of Wardrop Engineering and completed in 2003 [] [Structurae|id=s0006036|title=Esplanade Riel Pedestrian Bridge] . It spans the Red River connecting downtown Winnipeg with St. Boniface. It is paired with a vehicular bridge, Provencher Bridge. The bridge is only one of a few in the world in that it has a restaurant (Salisbury House) on it, giving patrons an excellent view of the river and in its rarely seen structure. The Esplanade Riel has become a landmark and is used in many promotional materials. The bridge itself is a side-spar cable-stayed bridge. The original drawing, stamped by Étienne Gaboury, rests in the Engineering building of the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg.
