New Montreal skating rink at Parc Jean-Drapeau

New Montreal skating rink

Still aiming to offer a unique winter experience to its visitors, Parc Jean-Drapeau is enhancing its programming with the creation of a new Montreal skating rink (700×10 feet), available today. This oval-shaped rink is located in the heart of Espace 67 and completes the Radio-Canada OHdio refrigerated rink offer, which has been in place since December.

Radio-Canada has also set up an elaborate Mitt-Warmer which allows you to warm your hands in cold weather.

Parc Jean-Drapeau reminds that equipment rental is available on-site. All of the activities are free: tubing, ice skating, snowshoeing and fat biking trails, cross-country skiing.

Sustainable development at the heart of our winter programming
The Société du parc Jean-Drapeau has deployed several initiatives, including the Leave No Trace program, to promote healthy coexistence between natural environments and the activities that take place on our site. We invite users to respect the seven ethical principles of the outdoors proposed by Leave No Trace Canada.

About the Société du parc Jean-Drapeau
Just a few steps from home, Parc Jean-Drapeau offers a wealth of recreational-tourist attractions that make it a one-of-a-kind place in Canada.  Easily accessible by the subway, use of public transportation to get to the Parc is strongly recommended to make your trip an even more enjoyable experience.
