This is the last weekend to skate at Old Montreal's outdoor skating rink

Mar 5 2020, 7:22 am

March’s weather will be good news for winter-haters but bad news for outdoor-skaters.

With spring around the corner (at least, we hope) the Natrel Skating Rink in Old Montreal will be closing for the season this Sunday, March 8.

Ice conditions on the refrigerated ice are “fair,” according to the Old Port of Montreal website, but the natural section of the rink has closed.

While refrigerated ice conditions are ideal for late-winter skating, maintenance, which takes 30 minutes three times a day, will be too difficult to maintain once the weather warms up.

The outdoor rink will be open every day from now until Sunday from 10 am to 10 pm. Meaning, if you haven’t done date night at the rink yet, you might want to get moving.
