RiverWorks‘ two outdoor ice rinks are covered by a metal pavilion with open sides to provide shelter while maintaining an outdoor feel. These ice rinks play host for hockey leagues and events, curling leagues and events and figure skating practice and events in the winter.

In the summer the concrete slabs of the rinks are used for a variety of sporting and event program space including: backyard games; roller hockey; roller derby; tennis; volleyball as well as concerts and events.

Finally, RiverWorks has built the first ever, fully functioning brewery that has been retrofitted into the existing grain silos. The former GLF Grain Silo houses the RiverWorks Brewing Co., that uses direct tank-to-tap lines for the three interior bars, as well as, a fourth bar located in the silo itself, situated directly next to the RiverWorks Beer Garden, which is constructed amongst the foundational remnants of another former grain silo.
