Winter Skating In Greater Moncton

Skating is a huge part of winter for many, but do you like to skate outside, in the fresh air? This series features Outdoor Winter Activities for the family. We are kicking it off with Outdoor Skating Venues in Greater Moncton. We also have a list of Sleigh Rides In NB, as well as Maple Sugar Camps In New Brunswick and Winter Festivals In New Brunswick
I remember as a child and teen spending many hours at outdoor rinks with my family and friends(I practically lived at the local arena as well, for figure skating). I grew up in Quispamsis, NB and always skated on the Kennebecasis River or at the Rothesay Commons. 

Now, living in Moncton, and raising my family here, we are learning where all the best spots are around the region for our favourite winter activities. This list of outdoor skating rinks is the start of our Outdoor Winter Activities series. Watch for new activities and roundups of locations coming soon!

Winter Road Trip Check List

Winter Road Trip Check List

We are trying harder each year to enjoy more time outside in the Winter. In Eastern Canada, we tend to get a large accumulation of snow most years. This is great if you are into skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, or other snow-related activities. We love things like Sleigh Rides (List of New Brunswick Sleigh Rides), and Outdoor Skating (In Moncton), or later in the season, visiting Maple Sugar Camps.

As I have been planning activities this Winter, checking out festivals (such as the Jack Frost Festival in PEI), looking for activities to do as a family, or seeking venues to visit within a few hours of our home, I got to thinking about what to take with us. Packing the car up for a Winter Road Trip is a little different than what I pack in the warmer Summer months.

In our vehicle, we pack a Road Trip Kit, and now have different seasonal lists of what to pack. You can find these printable lists for Summer or Winter, as shown below.
