Lace Up for Outdoor Rinks


20171128 112742

If you haven’t stopped by the Niverville Arena parking lot in a while, you may not have noticed the major addition of the town’s new outdoor rink, complete with boards. Construction on the project began in late fall, and the rink is expected to be completed in the following weeks, just in time for the coldest temperatures.

Two other outdoor rinks will be available in Niverville, one in the Fourth Avenue Bible Church parking lot and the other at Hespeler Park, near the picnic shelter. With the newly installed solar lights in Hespeler Park, the rink will be well lit throughout the winter.

If you live in Ste. Agathe, get ready to hit the ice at the outdoor rink located next to the arena. St. Adolphe, too, has a new outdoor pleasure rink located in the newly built Parc Pointe Coupée Park. Residents of Grande Pointe can look forward to their outdoor rink at Grande Pointe Park once the weather cooperates with consistently cool temperatures.

Île-des-Chênes also has an outdoor rink, adjacent to the arena. The Arena Board is seeking volunteers to help operate the outdoor rink this winter. They can be contacted at their Facebook page (see below).
