Variety Heritage Adventure Park repairs

Parks Canada is implementing a number of upgrades and repairs at the Variety Heritage Adventure Park that will extend through July. This is being done to ensure the park is safe and enjoyable for visitors.

Work will include: 

  • on-site repairs to play elements such as the wolf, bison, train and steamboat;
  • installation of a rubber pad and artificial turf at the bottom of the bison hill slide;
  • repair or replacement of rubber flooring in some areas; and
  • temporary removal of the French Quarter feature to repair surface cracking (July).

The Variety Heritage Adventure Park will remain open to the public throughout the summer while the repair work is ongoing. To ensure public safety, as each play structure or element is being worked on, that area will be closed to the public and access restricted.

Any questions or concerns can be directed to Parks Canada by phone at (204) 983-6757 or by e-mail at
