Niverville’s Wetlands, part of their Green Initiatives, is not only great for the environment and first-of-its-kind project in Canada but is also a breathtaking experience.

This multi-award-winning project (most recently the 2019 CAMA Environment Award – Under 20,000 Population Category) offers an experience of beauty, education, and wonder. The project started with the Town of Niverville’s decision to decommission the 12 ha Niverville Lagoon System (that had reached the end of its life) in a responsible, environment-friendly way. Native Plant Solutions came to Niverville to propose an in situ treatment of bio-solids (sludge) using Phyto- and bio-remediation, and with that, the Niverville Wetlands were born.

The Wetlands are thriving, and development for visitors of the land continues. In 2018, 270 trees were planted, a viewing hill constructed, an educational kiosk along the Crow Wing Trail was added, and walking paths that connect to soccer fields, the splash pad and Wetlands interpretative recreational park were developed.

If you are looking for a peaceful park to enjoy a picnic, sports grounds, man-made and natural play structures, and history, you can find it all at Hespeler Park. The eighty-acre Park is named after William Hespeler, a man who assisted in the Mennonite settlement of Southern Manitoba.

With plenty of opportunities for great outdoor fun, this Park can keep you busy for hours! Walk around the Park and learn about the history of William Hespeler through the National Historic Site and Monument plaque. There are paved paths that are perfect for walking, biking, and rollerblading.

Perhaps the most exciting adventure waiting for you is the Crow Wing Trail. Hespeler Park offers access to the Crow Wing Trail, a trail that connects from Emerson to Winnipeg through many Eastern Manitoba communities, and is 191 km long.

The Crow Wing Trail is a fantastic place if you are a nature enthusiast, with countless opportunities for birders, artists, historians, photographers, horseback riders, cyclists, hikers, and adventure seekers.
