Skating Oval

 The public skating oval is now closed for the season.

 

The oval is developed each year by Parks & Recreation Services staff and provides for warming shacks, portable washroom facilities, flood lighting, ambient music, and fire pits to cook on or warm up around. In addition, the Manitoba Hydro Power Smart Waterfall of Lights is also lit until 11 p.m. each evening so the public can skate around the oval and take in the brilliant, festive displays.

This amazing display of lights is located immediately west of the City of Brandon’s Community Services Complex on McGregor Avenue.

The public is encouraged to park in designated areas on McGregor Avenue or Hilton Avenue and watch for all heavy machinery in the area. NO public vehicles are allowed in the direct area of the Power Smart Waterfall of Lights display or the skating oval.

The City of Brandon Parks & Recreation Services would like to advise the public that sustained mild weather being experienced in Brandon in recent weeks has forced the closure of the skating oval in the area of McGregor Avenue for the remainder of the season, effective February 26, 2016.

The City of Brandon thanks all users of its outdoor recreational facilities for enjoying the spaces with respect and keeping them in good condition for all to enjoy.

Bring your skates, bring your family and enjoy the amazing ice paths all throughout the Waterfall of Lights display.
