Important Reminder re: Red River
There are many citizen-cleared trails and small rinks that have popped up along the river behind Glenwood – and all over the city! It’s great to see such enthusiasm and hard work going into celebrating our natural environment, especially during this pandemic!
For those who may not be aware, the ice on this part of the river is not monitored for safety by the City, so use is completely at your own risk. It is important that people who choose to use it are aware of the dangers. According to a recent article in the Free Press:
“The City of Winnipeg “does not monitor ice conditions on rivers, waterways or ponds throughout the winter months,” the city spokeswoman said. As a result, the city advises residents to “refrain from venturing on to any ice surface” during the winter, due to the possibility of “rapidly changing ice conditions based on weather, water currents (and) runoff.””
If you choose to use the river trails, please be safe and respectful of others!
