Outdoor Rink Opens Dec 29/20
The Garden City Community Centre Board of Directors is pleased to announce that we are beginning to flood our Outdoor Rink. While the Board was hesitant to proceed, we were strongly encouraged by the City of Winnipeg to proceed with providing access to this form of recreation for the Community. It is important to note that our facility is currently closed under the current Provincial Restrictions so the ODR will not be supervised at any time and employees are not on site. We will begin the flooding process immediately and hope to have it open in the next week. We will update our website and social media once the ODR is operational.
