I took my grandson this morning to see the buffalo and have a toboggan slide. What a great place. The buffalo were active, the toboggans are provided and the slide is quick, safe and long. He marvelled at the ice fishing and the hot chocolate...More

Unfortunately there aren’t many Hotels in this area. The closest is Holiday Inn on Pembina/McGillivary which is 11 km away from FortWhyte. Another option is around the airport which has a number of Hotels in most budgets. To my knowledge there isn’t public transportation to FortWhyte, Winnipeg does have a good Handitransit system
