The province on Tuesday officially opened what is called the Duff Roblin Parkway Trail just north of Winnipeg.
The 52-kilometre trail network runs along the expanded Red River Floodway and crosses Highway 59 west of Birds Hill Provincial Park. The trail is named in honour of former Manitoba Premier Duff Roblin, whose vision led to the creation of the original floodway.
“The Duff Roblin Parkway Trail runs the length of the floodway and links to family attractions such as the Trans Canada Trail and Birds Hill Provincial Park, to the soon-to-be-built Duff Roblin Provincial Park in St. Norbert,” Premier Greg Selinger said.
Approximately eight kilometres of the trail are asphalted while the remainder is granular. Future phases of the project will extend the currently paved section.
