Island Park



Located at Crescent Road & Royal Road South, Island Park is Portage la Prairie's Gem! Our amazing “Island in the City” is a scenic park that is second to none! Created by an oxbow of the Assiniboine River, the horseshoe-shaped setting is home to several playground areas, picnic sites, and recreational facilities. There are three picnic shelters and one bandstand for public use.  While on the Island you can observe the deer, take a walk along the scenic trails, or enjoy the abundance of Canada Geese that call Crescent Lake home.

If you are interested in sports, you can enjoy a round of golf at the 18-hole course.  Don’t forget to try a game of tennis on the 4 newly resurfaced courts! The park is a fantastic site for walking, jogging, cycling, rollerblading, or trying out your new scooter! Visit our outdoor leisure waterpark, Splash Island featuring 2 giant waterslides, a kiddie slide, tot pool, lazy river, and many other exciting amenities -- this  is fun for the whole family!  Situated adjacent to the outdoor waterpark is the PCU Centre!  The PCU Centre features two regulation size indoor arenas, one with seating capacity for 1675, an indoor walking track, 4,000 square foot fitness centre and Manitoba's largest wave pool!  The ideal place for recreation, sport and gatherings!

The winter creates a wonderland in the park as the duck pond is turned ice rink, a toboggan slide is created and cross-country ski trails are groomed. There are 2 washroom facilities, 3 picnic facilities and a performing stage that have power outlets. There is a wheelchair accessible pathway and park admission is free to the public. It is so beautiful you really must see it to believe it!
