8 outdoor hockey rinks to skate on in Montreal this winter

Nov 26 2019, 10:19 am

The weather is about to get cold in Montreal for a few months which mean it’s the prime time¬†to show off your Canadian pride and hit the ice at any of the city’s collection of outdoor hockey rinks.

Whether you’re going for a leisurely skate or you want to wire off a few clappers, these spots around the city offer not only the best ice and maintenance but have warm rooms to lace up, long hours, lights, nets, boards, and open-skate areas for the mini-skaters.

Let’s leave the Natrel Skating Rink out of this one, folks. It’s picturesque, chilled, and beautifully maintained but it’s not really an option for a pick-up game of shiny.

Plus, any place that charges you to get on the ice, isn’t what Canadian ODRs are about.

Be sure to check out the Ville de Montreal’s skating rink site¬†to check out ice condition details, which are updated daily.
