Winnipeg's 640-acre wild oasis features five lakes, seven kilometres of self-guiding forest trails, and natural adventure for everyone! Canoe and rowboat rentals are available for paddling and fishing for pike, walleye and trout on FortWhyte's scenic lakes. FortWhyte Alive is home to an abundance of wildlife including waterfowl, whitetail deer, and muskrats. Fall brings thousands of migrating birds, Canada geese, and ducks for a truly natural spectacle, making this a must-see destination for birding enthusiasts. Winter transforms FortWhyte into a wonderland for outdoor fun like snowshoeing, skating, cross-country skiing, and tobogganing. The Alloway Reception Centre offers visitor services including the Buffalo Stone Café and The Nature Shop. The Interpretive Centre is home to the Aquarium of the Prairies, Planet H2O and Prairie Partners exhibits, and the Kiwanis Touch Museum. Other must-sees include the Prairie Dog Town, Bison Prairie, Tipi Encampment, Floating Marsh Boardwalk, and Pioneer Sod House.

Open daily, year-round. Admission fees. Guided group ecotours in English and French are available by reservation.
