Activities

Made up of 38 hectares of mixed grass prairie, this park is situated by Lake Wahtopanah. The lake, a reservoir created by damming the Little Saskatchewan River, was named after the native word “watopapinah” meaning “canoe people”. The community of Rivers was named after Sir Charles River Wilson, Chairman of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Board of Directors. The park is home to a popular beach and provides ample fishing for pike, walleye and perch. For more information please contact Manitoba Conservation at 1-800-214-6497.
