Grand Beach Provincial Park

Grand Beach Provincial Park is a provincial park in Manitoba, Canada. It is located on the east shore of Lake Winnipeg, and has large white sand dunes and ancient beaches from the end of the last ice age. This park is about an hour of driving north of Winnipeg. There are many tourist businesses, a boardwalk, over a mile of beach, beautiful sunsets, and there are tens of thousands of visitors to this park. The beach truly is grand, and one of a kind in North America. Lake Winnipeg is one of the largest fresh water lakes in the world, and the largest within the borders of southern Canada. The park is a sanctuary for the piping plover bird that is an endangered species and nests on the beach. The park has a campground, hiking trails, skiing trials, and is close to a small town. There are bald eagles, bears, sea gulls, terns, pelicans, and a wide variety of other species that live in the area.
