With the recent snowfall over the past number of days, many outdoor enthusiasts have been enjoying their long-awaited winter activities.

Jennifer Bryson is the Senior Park Interpreter at Spruce Woods Provincial Park. Bryson says the groomed trails aren`t ready as of yet. However, looking forward to the winter months, she says there will be groomed trails for a number of winter sports throughout the Park.

``Once we get more going on here, all of our trails will be open all the time. You can enjoy cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, winter hiking, and snowmobile trails,`` explains Bryson.

```We`ve also got our winter recreation area. So, up there we`ve got a toboggan sled hill, two warming shelters, a curling rink, and skating oval. There`s lots of stuff to do in the park!``

`` Right now,`` she adds, ``it`s beautiful out! So, if you want to go for a gorgeous winter walk, or if you want to strap on those snow shoes you can take a little tour through the park. The snow isn`t too deep yet and you can practice with the little ones at this time.``

``If you want to check out the beautiful white snow, and the beautiful scenery here in the Park, come out for a walk!``
