Spruce Woods Visitor Centre

Return to previous page

The Spruce Woods Visitor Centre is our premier interpretive centre. Built by the Province of Manitoba and the Friends of Spruce Woods, the Visitor Centre provides numerous opportunities for you to discover the natural, cultural and historical features and outdoor experiences at Spruce Woods Provincial Park.

Exhibit Pano

The Visitor Centre’s Exhibit Building contains attractive displays introducing the area's significant natural and cultural resources. Starting with development of the landscape as a delta in glacial Lake Agassiz, panels portray the arrival of Indigenous peoples, fur traders, settlers, and highlight where visitors can explore its natural communities. Spirit Sands, ox-bow lakes, mixed-grass prairie and special landscape features, are all easily accessible from here.

Park Interpreters can provide you with information on the park features and provide hand-on activities that encourage discovery and learning. See specimens of the endangered western hognose snake and northern prairie skink, birds, mammals and other wildlife found in the park.

Be sure to check the Spruce Woods Events Calendar for amphitheatre presentations, campfire talks, group workshops and other interpretive programs held year-round.
