Explore: Portage la Prairie’s Island Park

Portage la Prairie is a quick and easy, perfect day trip from Winnipeg! In this post we’ll highlight Island Park as a destination point.

Located approximately 70 km East of Winnipeg on Highway 1, Island Park in Portage la Prairie is a very easy destination to get to. Simply head West on Trans-Canada Hwy 1, take the MB-240 exit into Portage la Prairie and continue on that until you see the bridge to get over on to the island (Royal Rd).
