Things to do at the Parc

A rectangular refrigerated skating rink will be set up and maintained at Espace 67 during the winter months. The rink will have a smooth surface and will provide skating enthusiasts with hours of pleasure all winter long, despite the occasional whims of Mother Nature.

There will be a musical ambiance to liven up your skating activity, through the courtesy of Radio-Canada and its new OHdio app, which enables you to listen to continuous music. The invitation has been issued, so come on over and do some open skating while admiring the sun as it sets behind the city's skyscrapers.

An absolute must-do winter activity!
