Whether it be cross-country skiing, tobogganing, ice skating or a brisk walk, there’s no shortage of fun winter activities to do in Winnipeg over the holidays. (THE CANADIAN PRESS/Andrew Vaughan)

Now that you’ve consumed your fair share of Christmas turkey, it may be time to head outside and burn off some of those calories.

The City of Winnipeg has provided a list of fun activities you can do over the holidays.

Kildonan Park, Waterfront Drive, Bunn’s Creek Park, St. Vital Park, Crescent Drive Park and Fraser’s Grove Park will have their toboggan slides open to the public for the holidays. Toboggan hills are open — slide at your own risk.

Visit the sparkling new St. Vital Duck Pond Pavilion and enjoy the view of the skating pond and the Ecobuage Bonfire Pit. Due to warm temperatures, ice skating surface may be limited.

Peguis Pavilion Pond in Kildonan Park is open for skating, but the ice skating surface may be limited due to warmer temperatures recently. Benches and picnic tables will be located around the rink.

Cross-Country Skiing
Winter conditions have been favourable for ski-trail tracking. Trails are maintained weekly at Kildonan Park, Harbourview, St. Vital Park, La Barriere Park, and Living Prairie Museum.

Park Trails
Enjoy a refreshing walk in the winter wonderland of the city’s many park trails.
