Two national parks (Riding Mountain National Park and Wapusk National Park), over 100 provincial parks and numerous local parks are located in Manitoba. Many of them are water-oriented with a lake or lakes as a part of the park. Also some recreational communities (e.g. Gimli and Winnipeg Beach) are located beside lakes. Outdoor sports facilities such as ski hills, golf courses and racetracks are readily identified on remotely sensed images but indoor facilities are more difficult. However, in small communities in southern Manioba there is a good chance that the largest building is a hockey rink and that long narrow buildings house curling lanes.
