Parkland Region

Forest oasis with infinite adventures.

A national treasure along the Manitoba escarpment

The Parkland region gets its name from its landscape -- pockets of forest emerging from grasslands. Manitoba’s Parkland has the added bonus of a range of hills formed by glaciers known as the Manitoba escarpment. There are several parks in this region that take advantage of this special landscape, including Manitoba’s most accessible national park, Riding Mountain. Make Clear Lake Country your home base to explore its lakes and trails any time of the year.

Visit the Parkland Regional Tourism Association for more information on local activities and events.

Discover prairie giants

From Manitoba’s highest peak (Baldy Mountain in Duck Mountain Provincial Park) to its largest ski resort (Asessippi Ski Area & Resort), the Parkland is a destination for outdoor adventures. It also reflects Manitoba’s prairie past through museums and heritage sites like the Inglis Grain Elevators.

The Parkland region is located on Treaty 2 and 4 territories >>

Dauphin is often called the “hub” of the Parkland. Not only is it close to nearby parks, it’s home to two major summer festivals: Dauphin’s CountryFest and Canada’s National Ukrainian Festival.

Warming up winter

Snowmobilers love Manitoba for its dense forests, wide open frozen lakes, hilly terrain and the abundance of snow. In the Parkland, the Swan Valley region is often regarded by snowmobilers as one of their favourite sledding destinations.
