Assiniboine Park is a paradise for FREE winter outdoor activities. The north side of Nature Playground becomes Toboggan Hill for tobogganing (and possible snow tubing??). The Riley Family Duck Pond beside the Nature Playground allows ice skating on frozen pond. Visitors can change into skates or simply warm up inside the shelter on the north side of the pond; no skate rentals on-site, bring your own skates. The Qualico Family Centre Park Cafe on the west end of the pond provides visitors for a quick snack, hot beverage and meals, or fireplace seating area for some warmth after skating. The park also has extensive Nordic cross country ski trails (check below for more info). Snowshoeing anywhere there is snow!!! Don’t like skating? Not a problem. Try ice walking on the frozen pond!
The hours of operation for Assiniboine Park is 24hrs a day, all year round.
