Parks and Open Space

Trails and Pathways

All City-owned play structures and picnic shelters are open as per the Province of Manitoba's Restoring Safe Services plan, as are skate parks, tennis courts, basketball courts, and athletic fields (soccer, baseball, football, etc.). The City will not be cleaning or sanitizing playgrounds more frequently than normal. Use of these spaces is at your own risk.

Please note that social distancing is still required while within City parks and individuals must maintain a distance of at least two metres from every other individual in the park. This does not apply to people who can demonstrate that they are living together in the same household. Individuals are also prohibited from assembling in groups of more than 50 persons in an indoor place or more than 100 in an outdoor place. Any businesses operating within City parks must follow provincial public health orders.

For more information, see: Enforcement measures

Toutes les structures de jeu et les abris pique-nique de la Ville sont à nouveau ouverts suite à l’annonce du Plan de rétablissement sécuritaire des services de la Province du Manitoba, tout comme les planchodromes, les terrains de tennis, de basket-ball et de sport (soccer, baseball, football, etc.). La Ville ne nettoiera ou ne désinfectera pas les terrains de jeu plus souvent que d’habitude. L’utilisation de ces équipements est à vos risques et périls.

Nous rappelons qu’il faut continuer de suivre les mesures de distanciation sociale dans les parcs municipaux, et se tenir à au moins deux mètres de toute autre personne présente dans le parc. Ces mesures ne s’appliquent pas aux personnes qui peuvent prouver qu’elles vivent dans le même ménage. Il est également interdit de se rassembler en groupes de plus de 50 personnes dans des espaces intérieurs et de plus de 100 personnes à l’extérieur. Les activités commerciales ayant lieu dans les parcs municipaux doivent se dérouler conformément aux directives provinciales en matière de santé publique.

Trans Canada Trail

If you enjoy Winnipeg's trails, you might also be interested in the Trans Canada Trail.

The Trans Canada Trail is a 18,000 kilometer recreational corridor that makes its way through Winnipeg as well as every Province and territory in Canada, linking 800 communities along its route. When completed, this will be the longest trail of its kind in the world, connecting our regions, our three oceans and our people in a new way for generations to come. Here is a searchable map for locating the area of this trail closest to you.

To learn about the best walks in the city and surrounding parks, read Winnipeg Walks by Prairie Pathfinders. An illustrated guide with full colour detailed maps and photographs, this book can be found in most Winnipeg book stores. You can also order this book by visiting the Prairie Pathfinders web site.
