SO - you're looking to find a place to skate outside in Manitoba? This thread is dedicated to outdoor skateparks...what they're called, where they're located, whether or not they're worth checking out.
Peace.

Worth checking out? Yes. If you're in Winnipeg, this is the place to go.

Happyland

Happyland

Location: On the South-West corner of Marion & Archibald Street, in the community of St. Boniface.
Features: Snake run.

Worth checking out? Only if you're in the mood to reminisce about old school snake runs. This one's quite short, not too exciting, and may have been sick "back in the day" when that was the only skate park around. But in my opinion, the park has had its day.

I'm liking the look of Happyland ! ... is that the full length of it in the picture?

EDIT: just seen your clip in the other thread, so guess it is ... still looks like it'd be a laugh.
