Over the past number of years the RM of Pipestone has been planning and spending money on upgrades to benefit area residents while working to attract tourists.

The improvements include the installation of a man made lake, enhancing campgrounds and now a new clubhouse at the local golf course.

Tara Cowan is recreation and facility manager with the municipality and she says it’s really helping to bring people to town. “Things are looking great. We have the lake, full service campground, spray park and a brand new clubhouse at the golf course.”

“Since we’ve had the lake tourism has spiked and we love seeing so many people visiting the area. It helps our economy, local businesses and helps our community to be a destination. We’re lucky to have the man made lake and it’s a great addition to the Reston area.”

The lake is free for people to use and Cowan says during the summer the campgrounds are pretty full especially during swimming lessons.
