Riding Mountain Park East Gate Registration Complex National Historic Site

Rising up at the curve of the road, its truss bridge spanning the twin turret-like cupolas, the East Gate Registration Complex stands proud as the last remaining early 1930s-style National Park gate. A shining example of the traditional Canadian Rustic Design style of architecture, its logs and stone walls were built by local craftsmen with local materials. Nowadays it still remains as eastern gateway to Riding Mountain National Park.
