1. Skating at the Cameco Meewasin Skating Rink 

Meewasin Skating Rink

Is there a more iconic winter activity then skating on the Cameco Meewasin Skating Rink? We can’t think of any. You will find this skating rink along the river valley and beside the historic Delta Bessborough. Put on your favourite winter outfit and grab that skating selfie!
