Mill Creek Beaches

The landscape along the west shore of Lake Winnipeg in Manitoba's Central Region is varied and includes areas of mixed forests and limestone cliffs. There are wide ranging beach conditions; from sand beaches to cobbled and rocky shorelines. Marshes, bogs, fens and wet meadows provide for an abundance of wildlife for viewing and hunting. The area can accommodate a diverse range of recreational activities. As well, Hecla Golf Course, an 18-hold public course is located within an hour from the subdivision.

Lake Winnipeg is one of Manitoba's greatest freshwater resources, and plays a vital role in tourism, recreation, commercial and sport fisheries, and hydroelectric generation. The lake is home to abundant aquatic life including fish, invertebrates, and plants. Fishing opportunities include catching a variety of species including world-class pickerel (walleye), goldeye, sauger, whitefish, and others. Lake Winnipeg's world-class beaches attract many on the east and west shores.

One of the subdivision's most attractive features is the number of sandy beaches located within and adjacent to the development. Trails from the back lot clusters will provide easy walking access to the beautiful expansive beaches at either end of the subdivision. The area is a mixed boreal forest cover with various softwood and hardwood species being present. There is a public boat launch located approximately 8 km away at Beaver Creek Provincial Park.
