A Winter Wonderland

Winter enthusiasts will enjoy the cross-country ski course at the International Peace Garden this winter. The Manitoba Cross-country Ski Association brought its provincial championships to the International Peace Garden on February 2017, and its 5.3-kilometer course is open to the public during the winter.

Coming to the garden in winter opens up a range of outdoor activities available in this area. The cross-country ski trails at the International Peace Garden are just one venue. Ski trails – and downhill opportunities – can be found in both provincial and state parks. Adam Lake – next door in Manitoba – also maintains a couple of skating rinks on the lake each winter!

Need a break from the cold? The Conservatory is open year-round and houses more than 5,000 species of cacti and succulents.

Enjoy formal gardens, the unique diversity and texture of The Conservatory or just become one with Nature.

Outdoor games, scavenger hunts and geocaching are just a few of the ways families can spend time together enjoy the Peace Garden.

The acres of the garden beg to be explored on bike or on foot. Better yet, grab a kayak and float.
