MANITOBA – Winnipeg Beach’s main beach reopened Friday afternoon to the public after it was closed for more than a year.
The beach was closed after the seawall was heavily damaged by a storm, but now repairs in the area are nearly complete.
“In the next 2-3 weeks there will be certain areas that will be closed to the public. We’ll still provide access to the beach in other areas,” said Regional Park Superintendent for Sustainable Development, Richard Romaniuk.
Last summer the Manitoba government invested $5 million to rebuild the boardwalk and seawall.
Construction on the north beach is also still happening, but it is expected to be complete later this summer.
