5 Reasons to Visit Pinawa this Summer

Pinawa is a beautiful resort-like community nestled along the Winnipeg River on the northern edge of the Whiteshell Provincial Park, only 110 kilometres from Winnipeg. A recreational paradise, where the white-tailed dear roam the streets and the local residents are ready to greet you with a smile and treat you like part of the family. Pinawa provides so many wonderful outdoor recreational experiences to choose from. Here are our top five summer choices!

#1 Enjoy a Round of Golf at the Pinawa Golf & Country Club

Surrounded by a mature boreal forest, The Pinawa Golf & Country Club stretches along the edges of the Winnipeg River and the Pinawa Channel, its fairways undulating over and around outcroppings of shield rock for 6,270 awesome yards.

These natural environs and their wildlife inhabitants make the club one of the most scenic, exhilarating, and challenging courses in Manitoba. Located in the midst of pristine wilderness beauty, The Course that Nature Built has become one of the province’s premier golf venues.

#2 Watch the Time Fly by at the Sundial

The Pinawa Heritage Sundial is a horizontal dial stretching 10 metres square, with a gnomon 5 metres high, and is designed specifically for the latitude and longitude of the site, incorporating 12 heritage icons depicting the Eastman region, themes of the First Peoples, La Vérendrye, the fur trade, the development of hydroelectric power, industry, research, as well as others. The structure teaches visitors how one of the world’s oldest timepieces is used to tell time.

#3 Dare to Cross the Pinawa Suspension Bridge

Located off the Alice Chambers Trail, the Pinawa Suspension Bridge is 54 metres long and 1 metre wide that was built by a group of volunteers and completed in the fall of 1998. Even if you’re not adventurous enough to cross the bridge, it is still quite the sight to see.

#4 Surround Yourself with Arts and Culture

Pinawa is the proud home of talented musicians, artists and woodcrafters who display their talented works of art all around the community. From the dedicated display space at the Pinawa Art Gallery 211 to the beautiful murals at the Sunova Mall that capture the joys of life in the past, present and future of Pinawa.

Enjoying finding art all over the community as local carvers have created special pieces near the Pinawa Mall and the Pinawa LGD Office, as well as a few surprises, especially hidden in the trees, along the Ironwood Trail.
