Birds Hill Provincial Park

North Drive
St. Clements, MB R0E 0K0

Birds Hill Provincial Park is located 24 kilometres north of Winnipeg on Highway 59, and covers approximately 8300 acres (35.1 square kilometres). This popular site for beachgoers, hikers, cyclists, and those who love the outdoors stages the Winnipeg Folk Festival and numerous campers in the summer seasons.  The park hosted the 1998 Canadian Triathlon Championships and the road cycling, triathlon, and equestrian competitions during the 1999 Pan American Games.

Features

The recently enlarged artificial lake, now approximately 80 acres, includes four miles of sandy shoreline as well as an improved water clarity making it suitable for triathlon and open water swim events.  The widely-paved roadways and circle drive make it an ideal location for cycling events.  

While admission to all events at Birds Hill Provincial Park are free, spectators will still require a Provincial Parks Pass, or pay the daily entry fee of $5 at the gate.
