This amazing space features a skating oval, a super sliding hill, a snowboarding hill, and trails that are perfect for a winter stroll.

During the annual Winter Carnival, Winter Wonderland Park is a perfect backdrop for a host of events. The trails are wide enough for family sleigh rides, the parking lot becomes home to inflatable igloos serving hot chocolate, there’s a crokicurl surface assembled, and the sliding hill makes the best fireworks launch pad! (CBC Kids has an awesome explainer on crokicurl; check it out here.)

We loved checking out the oval with the team from Tango Medical and some town staff. For several years the town has focused on creating inclusive and accessible events, including bringing sledges to the park for anyone to try. It’s a neat feeling to propel yourself along the ice in a sitting position!

Riverview’s Winter Wonderland Park is seriously one of the best kept secrets in the Greater Moncton Area! It’s only about a five minute drive from downtown Moncton, with onsite parking and easy access. When you pull into Quinn Court you might first miss the parking area to your right, but you’ll spot it easily once you turn in the court. From there, you’ll see the skating oval near Gunningsville Boulevard. The sliding hill is obvious, though formed in a way you won’t see the action from the parking lot.

Snowboarders are also welcome at Riverview’s Winter Wonderland Park! (Obviously you might want to wait for another big snowfall before testing the runs; we’ll try to get back to get better photos soon!)

Grab your sled, your skates and helmet, even your snow shoes and head over for a fantastic winter adventure right in Riverview. Pop ‘Winter Wonderland Park Riverview’ or ‘Quinn Court Riverview’ into your GPS to find directions; you’ll be happy you did!
