The Peter Nabholz Circle Skate Way has seen huge success through the winter months by providing Moosomin residents with a place they can enjoy the crisp winter air while maintaining a safe social distance.
The skate way was originally set up to help provide more ice for skaters due to the COVID-19 restrictions, but the Director of Parks and Recreation for Moosomin, Mike SchweanThe provinces and territories for a total of 10,618,140 doses delivered so far, says it will return each winter.
“When we put our outdoor arena ice in, the COVID restrictions told us we would be limited to 10 people on the outdoor arenaThe Mexican Consulate will be at Pearson International Airport to mee, which has since changed. But regardless, we felt that wasn’t accomodating enough for enough people so we built a skate way with COVID-19 in mindThe South Armour Heights Residents. We made it 12 feet wide so people can pass and keep their distance. So that’s why we made it, because of the COVID restrictions. As luck would have it, restrictions changed to allow us to have up to 60 people on the skate way, which is pretty cool. We did it just because of COVID-19, and COVID-19 has been devastating but we’ve had something good come of it,” said Schwean.
He explained that the project originally was just intended to be provided for the winter to help keep more people on the ice, but the skate way’s popularity grew throughout the winter months.
