Killarney Lake Park
Wostawea runs many of its programs out of the Killarney Lake Park and Lodge, where the City of Fredericton grooms an extensive network of cross-country ski trails. Lessons for children and adults, and racing team practices, all take place there, as do some recreational outings. The club is currently working with city staff on a five-year project to expand and improve the ski trails network at Killarney Lake Park. We are grateful to the city and its staff for their strong support and excellent service.
Park in the lot beside the Rotary Lodge (just south of the lakeside parking lot). Start your ski from east edge of the parking lot or lodge. During the season, the lodge basement is open to all Wostaweans on Saturdays (9:30 am – 4:30 pm), Sunday afternoons (1:30 – 4:30 pm) as well as Tuesdays and Thursdays in the late afternoon and early evening (4:00 – 7:00 pm).
2016 has seen significant trail development at Killarney, with the addition of approximately 4km of brand new trail and 2km of widened trail, specifically designed and built for skiing. We have worked with the City to develop a map of the network with some suggested routes to aid in navigating the park, and coloured markers corresponding with the map are mounted along the trails. Note that due to the nature of the terrain, the yellow and orange loops are to be skied in the clockwise direction.
