Outdoor Activities

Named after Dr. Curtis Park, the Birds Hill Provincial Park was opened to celebrate Canada’s 100th birthday, and features an unusual collection of diverse landscapes. From windswept prairies and rolling green meadows, to forests dominated by oak and aspen trees, the park covers nearly 3358 hectares (8300 acres) of land near Winnipeg. This massive park runs thick with kilometers of walking and cycling trails flanked by fields of wildflowers, inviting outdoor enthusiasts all year round. Its wooded depths are also home to a preserved historic homestead and a riding stable. At the heart of the park lies the sparkling Kingfisher Lake that is skirted by endless sandy stretches of the shore. Throughout the year, Birds Hill brims with a flurry of activities and events, including the Winnipeg Folk Festival, one of the largest of its kind in North America. Scores of visitors also stop by the park to watch engaging equestrian shows and polo tournaments.
