Indoors or Out, There is Something for Everyone!

BEGIN at the 6,500 square foot Alloway Reception Centre.  Here you will find Visitor Reception, Buffalo Stone Café, the Nature Shop, and conference and meeting facilities for everything you need with a wonderful setting!

EXPLORE the 10,000 square foot Interpretive Centre that features fascinating exhibits, including the Aquarium of the Prairies (Manitoba’s largest indoor aquarium), Prairie Partners burrowing owl and prairie dog live exhibit, dioramas, and much more!

DISCOVER our outdoor exhibits and 640 acres of prairie, lakes, forest and wetlands. Highlights include a 70-acre Bison Prairie and viewing mound, more than 7 km of interpretive trails and floating marsh boardwalks, family treehouse, birdfeeding stations, and songbirds, deer and waterfowl in their natural habitat.

GET INTO NATURE and experience the excitement of year-round catch and release fishing (kids 12 and under can take home up to 2 fish) in lakes stocked with Manitoba’s best sport fish, or enjoy more contemplative pursuits such as canoeing, hiking or birding. Winter offers a unique opportunity to enjoy ice-fishing, snowshoeing, skating, cross-country skiing, or a ride on the super toboggan slide.
