COVID-19: City of Winnipeg response and latest updates on City facilities and services COVID-19 : Mesures prises par la Ville de Winnipeg et dernières nouvelles sur les installations et services municipaux
Community Services


Recreation Equipment Loans

Indoor pools (excluding Eldon Ross and St. James Civic Centre) are now open for aquatic sports groups, lane swimming, aquatic fitness classes, and limited public swimming.

Select fitness and leisure centres are now open for limited fitness service only.

Select indoor arenas are now open for casual ice rentals and public skating.

Residents are encouraged to book two-hour swim, fitness and skating blocks prior to arriving at the facilities, as there is no guarantee of available blocks for registration upon arrival.

The Spring 2021 Leisure Guide and Spring 2021 Leisure Guide Skating brochure are available online. Register now for all spring activities except swimming.

The Spring 2021 Leisure Guide Swimming brochure, containing Learn to Swim activities, will be available online as of April 13, 2021. Registration for Winnipeg residents will begin at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, April 20, 2021.

Les piscines intérieures (sauf la piscine Eldon-Ross et du centre municipal de St. James) viennent de rouvrir aux groupes de sport aquatique, à la nage en longueur, aux cours d’aquaforme et, de façon limitée, au bain public.

Certains centres de conditionnement physique et de loisirs sont désormais ouverts pour des services de conditionnement physique limités seulement.

Certains arénas sont désormais ouverts pour la location de patinoire occasionnelle et le patinage public.

On encourage les membres du public à réserver un bloc de natation, de conditionnement physique ou de patinage de deux heures avant d’arriver aux installations, car il n’y aura pas nécessairement assez de place pour s’inscrire à l’improviste.

Vous trouverez le Guide Loisirs du printemps 2021 et la brochure de patinage associée en ligne. Vous pouvez vous inscrire dès maintenant à n’importe quel programme du printemps, sauf la natation.

La brochure de natation du Guide Loisirs, qui contient les programmes Apprendre à nager, sera mise en ligne le 13 avril 2021. Les personnes qui résident à Winnipeg pourront s’inscrire à partir de 8 h le 20 avril 2021.
