Feel free to head to any of Manitoba’s provincial parks anytime in February, the provincial government is offering free entry to parks for the entire month.

 

“Winter is a wondrous time to visit our provincial parks,” Sustainable Development Minister Cathy Cox said.

“Our parks offer countless opportunities to take part in winter activities or to simply enjoy the splendor of nature in a beautiful snowy setting. We encourage everyone to take a moment this winter to get outside and enjoy a walk in the park or blaze a trail with skis or snowshoes.”

Vehicle permits are not required in any provincial park, but SnoPasses are still required for snowmobiles using groomed trails in the parks

There are groomed trails in 12 provincial parks across the province for cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and hiking. Spruce Woods and Turtle Mountain provincial parks also offer outdoor skating areas, hockey rinks and toboggan hills while fat biking is welcome at Birds Hill Provincial Park on the Oak Ridge Mountain Bike Trail.
