Repairs to the Winnipeg Beach seawall from a storm last spring have been completed and the main beach will reopen at 3 p.m. on Friday.

Improvements include additional flood protection to the community’s shoreline and other amenities to the popular summer destination.

Additional finishing work on the sidewalk will continue for the next two to three weeks, so visitors are asked to follow signage and use the gravel path to the beach.

Construction is also continuing to the north beach, which is expected to reopen later this summer.

The main beach at Winnipeg Beach Provincial Park and the west beach at Grand Beach Provincial Park have recently been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag certification for excellence in water quality and environmental management.
