This amazing space features a skating oval, a super sliding hill, a snowboarding hill, and trails that are perfect for a winter stroll. It’s tucked away on Quinn Court, off Gunningsville Blvd, between Pine Glen Road & Findley Blvd.
The park is an amazing municipal feature throughout the year, but especially each February. 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 before Winter Carnival 2019 (for current programming, click here!). 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! Pickle Planet is proud to have been a partner sponsor for this activity since 2019.
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.

Be sure to check the conditions before heading out; sometimes the Town has to close the hill to sliding because there isn’t enough snow or it’s not drifted properly. Please respect the signage – including the signs showing the hill reserved for snowboarders!
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!
