Lac du Bonnet has six great park locations to choose from!
Lac du Bonnet Town Dock and Beach
The Lac du Bonnet Town Dock and Beach is located on Park Street. While small, there is no shortage of fun! Enjoy the day swimming, building sandcastles, laying in the sun or playing with the kids on one of the play structures.
The town dock provides the perfect place to dock your boat for the afternoon while you visit the local stores, or stop somewhere for a bite to eat. Fishing the Winnipeg River is also a favourite pastime for locals and visitors alike.
In the winter months, kids from all around gather here to sled down the beach hill and skate on the outdoor rink that is created annually.
The Lac du Bonnet Town Dock and Beach are also home to the yearly Canada Day Fireworks Display and the Lac du Bonnet Ice Fishing Derby.
More commonly known to the local kids as Elephant Park because of the large play structure, Memorial park has a large open field for playing, and swings to play on.
Located on Park Avenue, Memorial Park is home to the Lac du Bonnet War Memorial, serving as a remembrance to our fallen soldiers. The Lac du Bonnet Legion Branch #164 hosts a yearly Decoration Day in June, carrying on a tradition that began in 1890. A parade marches to the Lac du Bonnet Cenotaph, where a Service of Remembrance and wreath-laying takes place. The parade usually includes colour parties from other MB branches as well as a full pipe band.
Leslie Park is located at the South end of Park Avenue in Lac du Bonnet and provides a wide variety of play structures for children of all ages, including swings! The park also features an outdoor basketball court, a flower garden, and a walking trail. Not only is Leslie Park an ideal location for family fun, but it also offers a scenic background for family photos!
Most notably is the recent addition of the accessible playground structure. This project was spearheaded by the local Lac du Bonnet Lions Club, who rose the funds and erected the structure with a team of community volunteers.
Just over the bridge and down the walking path from Leslie Park, you will find yourself in Lakeside Park, which offers a gorgeous bankside view of the Winnipeg River. Walk along the trail or enjoy some quiet reflection while sitting on one of the park benches.
Halliday Park, located on Highway #502, is rich with the history of Lac du Bonnet. Named after the area’s first registered homesteader, William Duncan Halliday, the park is home to the Lac du Bonnet and District Museum. This stunning property is the perfect place for a family picnic and beautiful family or wedding photos.
Bridgeside Park isn’t too big, but it is a great place to cast your line for some fishing or stop in for a picnic. Located on Highway #313, just East of the bridge, Bridgeside Park also has a boat launch.
