A new skating path is opening in Winnipeg, tracing the one-kilometre Terry Fox Fitness Trail through Assiniboine Park.

The one-way trail, starts just south of the conservatory. There’s a parking lot there, just after you pull onto Conservatory Drive, off of Corydon Avenue.

The trail runs adjacent to Corydon, looping through forest and grassland areas, and past the CN locomotive.

There is a warming shelter where skaters can stop, lace up and store their boots while they enjoy the trail, but you might also want to bring a flashlight or headlight along. The trail isn’t lit in the evenings.

The nearby duck pond, next to the Qualico Family Centre, is lit, however. It opened earlier this month and also has a heated warming facility.
