Enjoy the outdoors at FortWhyte Alive

  • Print

Outdoor enthusiasts love hiking and exploring Manitoba’s wilderness areas.  Fort Whyte residents can access these opportunities fairly easily because of FortWhyte Alive.

It truly is one of the great wonders of Winnipeg. It’s pretty rare to have a place inside the city where you can go and enjoy an Eco tour of 640 acres of wildlife. It’s rare to be able to learn about marshes in a city. You can stay in Winnipeg to go on a safari, in a bison compound.  As well, First

Nations and Metis cultural displays are there to be explored.

I grew up on a farm and know about the joys of living off the land. It’s an outstanding opportunity to see an urban farm with chickens and pigs, a field of produce and a greenhouse and learn how those operations work.  

FortWhyte Alive offers canoeing as well.  You can rent a canoe on-site or bring your own.  If you’d rather stay on land, and want to take part in a unique event, I would encourage you to get a headlight and running shoes to run in the Twilight Run on August 29.

As schools wrap up their activities heading into the summer, parents will be looking for excursions and activities to keep everyone active. I encourage everyone to consider heading to FortWhyte

Alive and taking part in their many activities. FortWhyte Alive shows you can enjoy the outdoors right here in Winnipeg.

I look forward to returning to FortWhyte Alive.  Hope to see you there.
