Skating is a Manitoba tradition!

Nearly every town has an arena or outdoor rink for skating. Check out public skating hours at your local rink! Some spaces rent out skate assists for kids. Places like the The Forks in Winnipeg also rent skates.

While most indoor rinks have scheduled public skating times, often outdoor rinks at these venues are a bit more flexible. There is also skating at outdoor venues like The Forks, St. Vital Park and Assiniboine Park on the river and duck ponds!

Pleasure Rinks

Winnipeg has these small little pleasure rinks scattered around and they are kind of adorable. They have benches to change skates but not much else. But some situated in pretty parks and are worth checking out! Winnipeg pond and pleasure rink skating information can be found here. Click that link to see which pleasure rinks are ready for the season. As of Dec. 26 some were still being prepared.

*2020* No opening dates yet

There is a list of Winnipeg arena public skating times included here but I noticed that some arenas are not on it and you may need to look up your individual community centre to see what their public skating times are because they may change weekly.
