A popular place in summer is the Pembina Provincial Park, smack dab in the middle of our two hamlets in the beautiful Pembina River Valley. It features camping, swimming, fishing, canoeing, tubing hiking and terrific picnic facilities. Turn right and up the hill into Evansburg over the new bridge and catch a Saturday Farmer’s Market, or stop by one of many businesses to find some local treasure. If river water is not to your liking, check out the outdoor swimming pool in Entwistle, turn left and up the hill from the Park.
Other facilities include a nine-hole golf course (just outside of Evansburg on the North road over the Lobstick), tennis courts in Evansburg initiated by the Grand Trunk High School’s Student Union, walking and cross-country ski trails, seniors’ drop-in centers, bingo, aerobics, fitness gym, baseball diamonds, soccer pitches, arena, and a Provincial Public Library in each hamlet.
Or stop by Tipple Park, in the heart of Evansburg. The museum offers a glimpse into the past, and explains what a Tipple is. You can picnic on the grounds, or go sledding in the winter.
Both communities boast a small army of volunteers in a variety of clubs and community organizations such as the Evansburg/Entwistle Chamber of Commerce, Evansburg & District Recreation Board, minor hockey, figure skating, minor ball, catholic women’s League, Lions Club, Elks Club, Scouts, Girl Guides, 4-H, Cadets, Royal Canadian Legion Branch 196, dance clubs, soccer, art club, drama club, and the list goes on!
