Visit the sparkling new St. Vital Duck Pond Pavilion and enjoy the view of the skating pond and the little tots hill or toast some chestnuts on the embers of the Ecobuage Bonfire Pit.

Benches and picnic tables will be located around the rink. Washrooms are available on the lower level of the Peguis Pavilion. Parking along the roadway is permitted.
There are over 40 pleasure skating rinks in neighbourhood parks. Find one near you: visit City of Winnipeg – Park Skating Ponds.
