Wintry Delights Inside and Outside Humboldt, SK

In the past, we have blogged about some great reasons to live close to the City of Humboldt. These blogs have told a lot about activities and organizations our area and are still a great resource. The “In Motion” LifestyleSpring Into Humboldt and Winter Wonderland in Humboldt all tell a piece of the story, but we have some new options that are worth sharing!

Our community and municipality has been hard at work adding ways to get moving and socialize in our region.

The Humboldt Uniplex continues to be expanded and provide amazing resources for young and old alike. It combines the following community facilities:

  • Elgar Petersen Arena (used for hockey, figure skating, conventions and tradeshows)
  • Jubilee Hall (meeting rooms and hall)
  • Curling Rink
  • Aquatic Centre (with waterslide)
  • Humboldt Collegiate Institute (grade 9-12)
  • Carlton Trail Regional College (post secondary GED and trades)

The most recent addition to the Uniplex is our community’s newest Fitness Room workout facility. It is available to the public for one time drop in, punch card or monthly passes. The Fitness Room schedule also has time set aside for use by students and the Humboldt Bronco hockey team.

The new, bright and spacious Fitness Room is a great way to get fit indoors.

Many people are more interested in playing team sports, but can’t commit to a schedule. There are a number of drop in adult (age 16+) fun leagues that have been organized recently. Drop-in basketball, volleyball, floor hockey and badminton are held weekly at various gyms around Humboldt for a small fee. Interested? Click here for locations and schedules.

Last but not least, the Humboldt Community Trails committee and the City have been working hard to expand the number of recreational trails  in Humboldt. There is a new section linking the Historic Park to Glenn Hall Park along highway 5 east. Another trail, lined with new trees, is along 5th Avenue, linking the Uniplex to Main St. downtown. These trails are complemented by “pocket parks” (rest stops with a bench) along the way.

The Humboldt Community Trails Committee works hard to create safe routes for non-motorized traffic in and around the City of Humboldt.

The opportunities to keep active, whether by yourself or with a group continues to expand in our community. Contact us for more information or additional ideas for ways to keep moving in Humboldt year round!
