What's available in our great community
Briercrest Curling and Skating Rink
Briercrest has a two sheets of artificial ice for Winter Curling. A curling league is set up but newcomers are always welcome. The "rink" also has a skating rink for family skating and for hockey. Washrooms and changing facilities are available. The rink also houses a concession that serves hamburgers, fries, onion rings, chicken strips, pop and juice, candies, chips, coffee, hot chocolate and mocha.
During the winter months community members form groups of six or so, and each group makes a homemade dinner with dessert for a community Friday Night Supper. These are well attended by villagers and area farmers, ranchers, and business people, where time is taken to socialize or have a family skate during the winter. Call: 1-306-799-2122
