Winter Activities

In the winter of 2020/2021 the  Brunswick Parks & Recreation Department maintains three locations for Cross Country Skiing and has three ice skating locations that we create and maintain ice.  This page will provide you with facility information and conditions of those facilities and trails.

Cross Country Ski Trails

KFW- Winter Trail Map WESTKate Furbish Trails - West

Current Status: 2/20- Fair-   About 2 inches of very light snow fell yesterday.  The trails will have a bit of grip with the new snow on top of the very icy base.  The existing groomed tracks will be in fair shape this weekend.

 Stay Warm and get out and enjoy the trails!!!!!

Grooming-   2/20

No trails will be groomed at this time. It will be the best option for skiable trails with the new snow on top of the very icy base. Grooming the trails at this point can possibly turn the trails into poor shape. 

NOTE: Parking is now allowed at the Mere Creek Golf course parking lot. Please see Kiosk for trail guidelines

Please adhere to all covid-19 guidelines while on the trails.  Face masks required, 6 feet social distancing.

Ice Skating Facilities

Lower Mall Rink

Current Status:  CLOSED FOR THE SEASONIMG_4634

Unfortunately, we have made attempts starting back in December and again in January to get the Mall ice rink up and operational, however mild temperatures, lack of snow and the loss of frost in the rink area has thwarted all previous attempts. At this point, we would need an extended cold snap and a minimum of one full week of such conditions accompanied by adequate snow depths to support a perimeter berm necessary to contain the water until it would fully freeze. 

Traditionally we cannot maintain the ice due to mild temperatures and extended day lengths beyond the February school vacation period. Given that we are closing in on that vacation timeframe in the next few weeks, the time and favorable weather conditions that we need to make the ice are not cooperating. As a result, we have decided to forgo continuing to make ice at the Mall in favor of the Lishness hockey rink which is currently skateable and opening to the public.
