Winter wonderland activities begin in Regina

With the winter season well underway in Regina, residents are encouraged to get out and enjoy the winter festivities.

The city of Regina has released its Winter Recreation Guide for the 2022-23 season.

Regina has implemented five new community firepits for local residents to gather outside and warm up. The firepits will be available every day from noon to 11 p.m. and residents must bring their own seasoned firewood.

There are also 19 newly designated toboggan hills around the city.

Regina’s cross-country ski trail at the Tor Hill golf course is now open once again. The 9 km trail has beginner, intermediate and expert areas. The trails have places to exit along the way, giving residents the option to create their ideal route.

This year’s trail offers a double-wide path with the choice of a skate skiing track or a classic cross-country ski track. The trail is open daily from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., weather permitting.

The city is currently hustling to get more than 50 of the outdoor rinks ready for the season. As of Monday, December 19, most boarded rinks will be ready for the public to use. Visit the city’s website to stay updated on the progress.

Regina’s wintry activities don’t end there.

Residents can chase their Olympic dreams at Regina’s Speed Skating Oval or try a classic Canadian game of Crokicurl at select outdoor rinks starting in January.

The city’s trails and dog parks will also be fully accessible for anyone to enjoy for a walk or bike ride.
