Frequently asked questions:

Why are the outdoor rinks closed on storm days?
On storm days, the snow removal priorities is the streets, the parkings and the sidewalks. With the teams concentrating on these tasks to assure people’s security, it is not always possible to prepare the rinks.

What are the ideal conditions for open and usable outdoor rinks?
The preparation and maintenance of outdoor rinks needs lots of patience and repetition. Despite our efforts to open the rinks as soon and as frequently as possible, many factors, as the weather, can stop the opening.

Enjoy the video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mo5CknyyuTA.

Preparation of the rinks:
The ground must be properly frozen. For this, the temperature must be lower than -5°C, day and night, during at least 7 consecutive days. To fix the cracks, a minimum of 10cm of snow is required. The ice must then be flooded 2 or 3 times per day, during 5 to 7 consecutive days, with a temperature of -7°C. As soon as the weather rises at -3°C and over during the preparation, the ice prepared the day before melrs. The teams must start all over. If it is too cold, it is impossible to flood the ice.

Maintenance of the rinks:
Throughout winter, a number of fraze-defrost cycles can affect the rinks. After many days with temperatures over 0°C, the ice softens, making the rink unsafe and breakable. It is then required to wait for freezing conditions. The surface of the refrozen ice is not as good quality and the steps must be redone before you can be allowed to skate in a safe environment.

This is why we are asking all citizens to cooperate by not skating when the rinks are closed, either during preparation or maintenance.

What to do if I see the rink is not usable and was classified "open"?
Call the Municipal Patrol at 514-684-6111.

How often are the rinks flooded?
Depending on the availability of the teams and equipments, and on the weather, ideally rink scan be flooded up to 5 times per week. This calls for cold weather and no snow.

Why is it not possible to play hockey on public skating rinks?
For the security of users. Some rinks are intended for hockey.

Can web ring a stroller on the outdoor rinks?
Strollers are only allowed on the public skating rinks. Security must be prioritized. We ask you limit the number of strollers when there are many skaters.
