Birdwatchers start heading to this park, on the southern shores of Lake Manitoba, in late April. For it's in spring that a wide variety of birds including, warblers, geese, and pelicans flock to St. Ambroise as a stopover in their travels. In summer, this park is especially popular with families, as the shallow waters and sandbars serve as a natural playground. Comb the shores, and listen to the songs of the summer residents such as catbirds, american goldfinches, and yellow-headed blackbirds. Take care not to disturb the nest of the endangered piping plover. Paddle out to the smooth sand inlets scattered just off-shore.
