Pinawa Dam Provincial Heritage Park – Lac du Bonnet

Experience a unique photo opportunity with the mix and mingle of nature, structures and history at Pinawa Dam Provincial Heritage Park!

The Pinawa Generating Station was Manitoba’s first year-round hydro generating plant and marked the beginning of hydroelectric development on the Winnipeg River. Pinawa Dam was developed in response to the demand for residential and commercial power and was crucial to the rapid growth of Winnipeg in the pre-war years. The station began delivering power in 1906 and was closed in 1951 to allow the full flow of the Winnipeg River to serve the Seven Sisters Hydro Station built downstream.

Today, you can walk the ruins of the dam and the Old Town Site, which offer great photo-worthy muses. You’ll encounter various wildlife like birds and whitetail deer and breathtaking views as you explore the site!
