Neepawa is a small town of around 4,600 people (2016) in the Prairie Mountain region of Manitoba. The town name of Neepawa comes from the Cree word for “Land of Plenty”
Neepawa is an agricultural service centre located in the aspen parkland of the Manitoba Escarpment. Although Neepawa is part of the prairies, the area to the north is heavily forested parkland. The economy of Neepawa and the region is strongly dependent on agriculture. The rolling fields in the area support many types of crops and livestock operations. More prominently, growers in Neepawa produce a diverse variety of lilies and Neepawa proclaims itself the “Lily capital of the world”.
Neepawa is located along the Yellowhead Highway (PTH 16) and PTH 5, about 45 minutes northeast of Brandon and 2 hours northwest of Winnipeg.
The town itself is walkable, but you’ll need a private automobile to explore the area attractions.
