Under new public health orders, organized practices and games are now permitted on outdoor rinks. Bourkevale has a long history of supporting minor hockey and has always made practice ice available for teams at all age levels. Not surprisingly, there has been significant demand for ice time since the new orders were released. Bourkevale has been flooded with them. The club attempts to balance those requests with the goal of providing ice to local residents for casual use. As such, we can only accept so many teams for practices and games.
At this time, requests for Bourkevale ice time have far exceeded what we can accommodate. We have booked a number of teams for regular practice slots and are not accepting any more. We would like to thank everyone for thinking of Bourkevale as a place to host their games and practices.

There was no plan to accommodate the daily users of these areas and a makeshift detour over curbs, through bushes and around the back of buildings, complete with handwritten signs were put up by a well-meaning construction worker.
The volunteers at Bourkevale identified the community concerns and worked with managers from the City of Winnipeg and TetraTech to develop a safe, marked path around the construction, but still connecting the neighbourhood as well as access to the dog park via Douglas Park Road.
Signage and path markers clearly show where we can all safely walk or ride for the next several weeks. This is a great example of how community centres have a role to play as advocates for the neighbourhoods they are in.
