Arenas and outdoor rinks
Refrigerated Bleu Blanc Bouge rink
The Bleu Blanc Bouge rink initiated by the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation at parc de la Confédération offers optimal ice conditions thanks to its refrigeration system, which preserves the ice in the event of a thaw and thus prolongs the outdoor skating and hockey season.
The rink is open daily from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. when the weather permits it. In keeping with its mission to promote physical activity among youth, the rink will give priority to student groups during school hours.
When there are no reservations, public skating and pick-up hockey are offered based on the schedule posted on site. The schedule is subject to change.
To reserve a time slot in order to hold supervised sports activities for youth, please contact the Direction de la culture, des sports, des loisirs et du développement social at 514 872-6364.
The borough’s arenas and their partners offer a variety of activities for the whole family. For information on the ice sports offered at your arenas, see the 2015-2016 Directory of Sports and Recreation Activities.
