Lockport Provincial Park is the location of an important archeological site in Manitoba. From 1984 to 1988, the Manitoba Historic Resources Branch worked on archaeological excavations, uncovering evidence of human activity at the site as early as 3,000 years in the past. In 1985, the Kenosewun Centre was built to allow cataloging and conservation of artifacts from the site. The centre was closed in 2010 after the building was found to be unsafe.
Lockport Provincial Park is one of a number of sites along the Red River which benefited from funding under the Agreement for Recreation and Conservation (ARC) which began in 1973. The site was designated a provincial park in 1997. Together with nearby St. Andrews Caméré Curtain Bridge Dam, Lower Fort Garry, River Road Provincial Park, St Andrew's-on-the-Red Anglican Church and St Andrew's Rectory, the park provides insight into the historical and cultural heritage of the Red River to the peoples of Manitoba.
The park is located within the Gimli ecodistrict of the Interlake Plains ecoregion part of the Boreal Plains ecozone.

Wonderful time spent watching pelicans on the water, fishermen in boats and casting from shore. Natural rocky shoreline with driftwood. Beautiful and well groomed park with picnic tables and shade trees. A worthwhile visit!
Fished by the Locks and Dam at Lockport Bridge Rd. Within 3 hrs. we caught 11 channel cats between 28-32 inches. 2 of them were Masters between 34 3)4" and 35 1/2". Great day for 🎣 fishing. Me, my son and my 3 1/2 year old grandson.
