RECREATION. This wee­kend, Sky Zone Dor­val will be hos­ting its grand ope­ning ce­re­mo­ny with an open house for the pu­blic. De­mons­tra­tions in the dif­ferent sec­tions, acro­ba­tic per­for­mances and free ac­cess to the fa­ci­li­ty will await vi­si­tors to this fa­mi­ly-friend­ly en­ter­tain­ment centre.

Just off high­way 40 near Sources Blvd., there is a new space filled with acro­ba­tic equip­ment built for all skill le­vels to play, exer­cise or com­pete. Wi­thin the walls lie tram­po­lines, foam pits, obs­tacles and more, di­vi­ded in­to sec­tions from ea­sy to dif­fi­cult ba­sed on ac­ti­vi­ty and age.

Open since ear­ly Ja­nua­ry, there are al­rea­dy some re­gu­lar cus­to­mers who exer­cise in­ten­se­ly, ac­cor­ding to staf­fer As­fand. «Ten mi­nutes jum­ping on a tram­po­line is like a 30 mi­nute run and there are lots of people who come here to get in shape,» he ex­plains.

Ath­lete to ama­teur, As­fand says there is so­me­thing for eve­ryone.

PLAYGROUND

The mas­sive wall-to-wall tram­po­line court al­lows chil­dren to climb lad­ders and jump around in sa­fe­ty, and those un­der the age of six can vi­sit the Todd­ler Zone.

Tram­po­line-en­han­ced ver­sions of basketball and vol­ley­ball can be played and there is a jous­ting pit, a rock-clim­bing area and the park has two dod­ge­ball courts.

«We are ho­ping to convince the Po­lice and Fire de­part­ment to come and have a dodge ball game. We would like to make it a re­gu­lar fun­drai­sing event,» ex­plains Ge­ne­ral Ma­na­ger Cle­von Da­vis.

Da­vis is ho­ping to of­fer month­ly ac­ti­vi­ties for teens and kids so they can hang out, stay heal­thy and safe. He wants his lo­ca­tion to be­come a place where lo­cal fa­mi­lies can share a fun and ac­tive ex­pe­rience to­ge­ther.

Mayor of Dor­val Ed­gar Rou­leau will be part of the open house as staff is ex­ci­ted about the spe­cial Sa­tur­day to present their fa­ci­li­ty.
