Gretna Arena
More than 40 years after Charlie Hayward made his pitch to the Town Council to build a new skating rink on the south end of town, the Gretna Community Arena Committee paid off the last of the loan used to build a new, enclosed arena just south of the Public School. Built in 1976, it took 6 years of hard work and fund raising to pay for the building.

Fast forward to 2000, the Gretna Community Arena Committee embarked upon a $1 million upgrade (half of which was volunteer sweat equity) to the arena infrastructure. With project leadership by John Funk, geo-thermal artificial ice, new hockey boards and glass, four new dressing rooms & a new tractor shed were added to enhance the experience for users. Now the arena enjoys a 5 month ice season uninterrupted by warm spells which formerly threatened the natural ice surface. The arena is home to hockey programs ranging from recreational programs for beginning players through minor and high school hockey on to adult recreational leagues and public skating.
For Arena Bookings call (204) 327-5849.

The Arena demonstrates the community spirit that Gretna residents display, which has carried the Town from early beginnings through many difficult times.
 
Plum Coulee Skate Park
The skate park opened up between the heritage square and the Prairie View Elevator Museum in 2011.  Started by a committee it is a great asset to the community.
