After 66 days the entire seven-kilometre Forks River Trail is closed for the season, Clare MacKay Vice-President, Marketing and Communications for the Forks, said this morning.
The River Trail is just over seven kilometres long, with half the trail stretching west up the Assiniboine River to Hugo Street, and the other half south up the Red River to Churchill Park.
The Assiniboine portion of the trail closed Monday, while the trail on the Red closed today.
An Olympic-sized skating rink in front of the Scotia Bank stage, and skating under the canopy are still open on land at the Forks, as are 1.2 kilometres of skating trails that are walking trails in the summer.
