In pre-COVID19 times, many kids and adults would have been swarming local community centres and ice rinks for hockey league games but during the pandemic, hockey is on hold.
Parents and hockey enthusiasts have taken to building a backyard outdoor rink so kids and adults can continue playing hockey.
The outdoor rink industry has been booming and many families are doing their research online to figure out the best way to build an outdoor rink.
There are rink kits available through many local retailers and online companies that specialize in building outdoor rinks. Reddi-Rink is one such product that is available to build a 10’x20′ in your backyard.
Similar to the Macareag Gardens with their 20×30 outdoor rink complete with Winnipeg Jets logos, they’re one of many families that will continue to embrace our beautiful Manitoba winters.
If your family is in the process or planning on creating a special outdoor rink, we’d love to hear about it. Send your outdoor rink photos and winter adventures to the Filipino Journal. Our email address is email@example.com.
