Winter Activities

Skating Rink at the Riley Family Duck Pond


The Riley Family Duck Pond is located in the heart of Assiniboine Park. During the winter months, the Duck Pond becomes an outdoor skating rink and popular place to enjoy the wonders of winter. The Duck Pond is surrounded by beautiful light displays so you can enjoy skating under the stars.

Hockey sticks and pucks are not permitted on the duck pond. We do not offer skate rentals. Please stay off the ice when plowing and flooding is underway.

Toboggan Hill


Located near the Riley Family Duck Pond and the Nature Playground, the Toboggan Hill is a favourite seasonal attraction for the young and the young at heart! The hill offers exciting thrills and spills for those who love the feel of wind (and snow) in their faces.

  • Bring your own toboggan
  • Slide with caution
  • Watch out for children and people walking
  • Be patient when the hill is busy
  • Most of all, have fun!

Cross-Country Ski Trails


Enjoy the serene beauty of Assiniboine Park on our groomed cross-country ski trails. During the winter months, the trails are typically groomed twice a week as weather permits. We do not groom the trails if it is snowing and will commence grooming when the snowfall stops. Trails are open 8:00 am to 10:00 pm during the ski season.
