The Sand and Water Pits Northeast of Winnipeg 

Just northeast of the city of Winnipeg are huge gravel pits known as the Garven pits.  Geological formations where there is unlimited fine sand/gravel deposits.  The pits also have some the clearest and bluest water in the area. Many people go swimming in the pits even though it is illegal. A very interesting combination, huge pools of clean water and what looks like gigantic beaches.
