17.28: Recreation Facilities at Manitou

The village of Manitou 1 is located in Pembina Mountain. As with many other southern Manitoba villages and towns, roads within the settlement are parallel, and at right angles, to the railway line, now disused 2, that bypasses the village to the north. PTH 3 3 runs south of the village.

Several recreational facilities are located in the western part of the settlement. A large building houses an indoor rink 4; an outdoor rink is located south of it 5; and a baseball diamond 6 is located further south. The large, multi-winged building north of the rinks 7 is almost certainly a senior citizens home. There is nothing to make this identification certain, but the size, shape and location of the building in a small community in southern Manitoba make it a strong probability. In the northeast is a long narrow building 8 that probably houses curling lanes. To the east are faint indications of a disused racetrack 9 and a golf course is located in the southeast 10. As usual sewage lagoons are located far from the built up area, in this case to the northeast 11.
