Birds Hill Lake Improvements
This $4.2 million initiative was undertaken to improve the public experience at one of Manitoba’s most popular recreational destinations. It added approximately one-third more lake and beach area to the provincial park and rehabilitated the existing lake bed in order to improve overall water quality.
To support the lake expansion, several elements of the park’s infrastructure were also improved with the goal of increasing the reliability, safety and efficiency of existing systems. Improvements included expanding and repairing the active transportation network, upgrading dated sewage systems, improving the east and west parking lots as well as repurposing existing assets to serve new, innovative functions within the park.
KGS Group & Scatliff+Miller+Murray Landscape Architects provided extensive design and construction support services over the duration of the project. The multidisciplinary team comprised of mechanical, structural, hydrological, electrical and municipal engineers, and landscape architects, successfully worked together to help ensure this valuable provincial asset will be enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of annual visitors for years to come.
