Patricia Beach Provincial Park

Located in the Interlake Plain portion of the Manitoba Lowlands Natural Region, the park is stretched along 2.5 kilometers of the south-east shore of Balsam Bay in Lake Winnipeg.  Terrestrial features in the park include the natural sand beach, shifting sand dunes, a lagoon/marsh and scattered stands of deciduous forest. The park protects various habitats for birds including a wetland for water birds and the beach is sometimes used for nesting grounds by Piping Plovers.

The main attraction in the park is the beach, which is backed by sand dunes. The beach makes for pleasant walks and provides access for swimming in the lake. There are also picnic areas and washrooms located within the park. The marsh presents opportunities for viewing a variety of wetland species.
