Now entering just its second season, Manitoba’s newest lake has upped the ante for folks looking for outdoor summer fun as the Province cautiously allows more services during the ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
When Reston Lake opened for the season earlier this month, visitors were greeted with a brand new floating dock and slide as one more way to enjoy the water in the man-made lake in the community of Reston.
The lake, an initiative of the R.M. Of Pipestone, also includes a sand beach surrounding it’s perimeter with visitors generally first staking out the East side for its softer sand.
The newest addition sits within a part of the lake that posted signage indicates is six feet deep at the slide’s end.
For folks curious for a more realistic look at the location, the interactive 360 degree panoramic photo below was captured on a recent family visit. To have a look around, click/tap and drag or zoom within the picture:
The lake sits adjacent to the area’s spray park, which is now open for the season according to a Wednesday social media post by the R.M. of Pipestone. Also in the immediate area are a campground and golf course, making for a true outdoor recreation hub that’s the envy of many a larger centre.
As is the case with all outdoor recreation venues in the Province this summer, social distancing expectations are in place in accordance with Manitoba’s Pandemic and Economic Roadmap to Recovery.
Reston is located an approximately one hour drive Southwest of Brandon. The lake and spray park were the subject of a post and more extensive photo gallery in this very section last summer.
