Outdoor skating rinks

The city operates numerous outdoor pleasure skating rinks located in parks. Certain highly used pleasure rinks have heated washrooms and warming shelters which are open to the public throughout the week as well as posted hours on weekends. Many small neighbourhood hockey rinks are also maintained for public use.

The City of Winnipeg is only responsible for the installation and removal of the KNOCK DOWN outdoor hockey rinks located at Community Centres. The installation and maintenance of the ice is the responsibility of the Community Centre. To obtain information on the hours of operation and location of skating rinks in your neighbourhood please contact your Community Centre.

Pleasure rinks

The city operates numerous skating rinks located in parks, school sites and at Community Centres. Certain highly used skating rinks have heated washrooms and warming shelters which are open to the public throughout the week as well as posted hours on weekends. Many small neighbourhood rinks are also maintained for public use.

No organized hockey allowed on pleasure rinks. Please use your local Community Centre outdoor rink for hockey play.

Did you know that when you register your child for a sport at a local community centre, a portion of the registration fee is used to:

Aerate, top dress, and fertilize soccer, baseball and football pitches? The fee only contributes to approximately 50% of the total cost of these services.

This youth athletic fee is already included in your registration fee, and is approximately $10 per participant.
