You can rent your skates at the rink, but remember to check the open hours of the Parc first, and make sure that the water has completely frozen over… Sometimes it takes a little longer than we may imagine.

The Parc Lafontaine is open year in and year out. In the summer time ducks and geese wait by the shores of the pond for passers-by to feed them, and in the winter time that same expanse of water is frozen over and turns into one of the city's largest skating rinks. Christmas lights are strung through the trees and softly-piped music keeps the beat as the skaters make their way around the rink. Yes, this is a great place for a date.
