Lockport Dam Red River


A small provincial park located on the east bank of the Red River at Lockport, next to the St. Andrews Lock and Dam. The park offers good viewing of American White Pelicans and Double-crested Cormorants fishing below the dam as well as a good variety of waterfowl, gulls, and terns.

During migration, we can see raptors such as the Osprey, Bald Eagles, and Red-tailed Hawk as well as several species of small songbirds such as the Chimney Swift and swallows.

The St. Andrews Lock & Dam at Lockport is not only a favourite spot of Pelicans to fish and play around but also humans. On a nice day, the shore is lined with people fishing as well as boats bobbing around on the Red River.
