Spruce Woods Park Centre

The Spruce Woods Park Centre is our premier interpretive centre.  Built by the Province of Manitoba and the Friends of Spruce Woods, the Park Centre provides numerous opportunities for you to discover the natural, cultural and historical features and management practices of Spruce Woods Provincial Park.

The Park Centre’s Exhibit Building contains attractive displays introducing the area's significant natural and cultural resources. Starting with development of the landscape as a delta in glacial Lake Agassiz, panels portray the arrival of First Nations, fur traders, settlers, and highlight where visitors can explore its natural communities. Spirit Sands, ox-bow lakes, mixed-grass prairie and special landscape features, are all easily accessible from here.

Continue your family discovery at the Park Centre into the newly upgraded Interpretive Workshop and chat with a Park Interpreter.  He or she can provide you with more information on the park features and provide hand-on activities that encourage discovery and learning.  See live specimens of the endangered western hog nose snake and northern prairie skink, fish species and amphibians found in the park.

The large amphitheatre, campfire circle and tipi provide the setting for live outdoor interpretive programs year-round.

Also on-site is the Gift Shop, operated by the Friends of Spruce Woods, where you can purchase souvenirs, local crafts, books and field guides of your visit to the park.

Located in the Kiche Manitou Day-use Area.  Admission is always free!
