No Shortage of Fun Activities During the Holidays

December 23, 2009 11:10 AM | Entertainment

With the kids out of school, and most people off work, there are plenty of fun things to do if you’re staying close to home during the holidays.

With a lack of snow, cross-country skiing and tobogganing may not be in the cards, but Environment Canada predicts a few centimetres of the fresh stuff by Christmas.

In the event there is enough snow to make tobogganing feasible, the city has outlined some hills you can check out:

  • Civic Park, 901 Kimberley Avenue
  • Victoria Jason Park (Crocus Park), 255 Redonda Street
  • Harbour View Recreation Complex, 1867 Springfield Road
  • Westview Park, 1 Midland Street

Winter Slides (Artificial snow has been brought in at some locations):

  • Assiniboine Park, 2355 Corydon Avenue (1 Slide open for holidays)
  • Crescent Drive Park, 781 Crescent Drive (Slide not ready till the new year)
  • Kildonan Park, 2021 Main Street (1 Slide open for holidays)
  • Bunn’s Creek Park, 365 McIvor Avenue (Slide open)
  • St. Vital Park, 190 River Road (Slides not ready till the new year)
  • Fraser’s Grove Park, 85 Fraser’s Grove (Slide open)
  • Waterfront Drive, Waterfront Drive and George Street (Slide open)

If skating is more your thing, the following rinks are now operational:

  • Assiniboine Park Duck Pond
  • Kildonan Park Duck Pond
  • Harbour View Recreation Complex
  • St. Vital Park Duck Pond
