Outdoor rinks closed, Sherbrooke offers Spring Break alternatives
Exceptionally mild temperatures at the beginning of the week have significantly damaged natural ice surfaces and the forecast for the coming days is not conducive to rebuilding them so City of Sherbrooke has chosen to close its natural outdoor rinks for the rest of the season. On the other hand, the City is offering a range of activities for the coming spring break.
First of all, the refrigerated ‘bleublanc rouge’ rink is still accessible and free skating and free hockey time slots are available every day in Sherbrooke’s arenas. Opening hours can be found at sherbrooke.ca/patinage. Mount Bellevue should also be accessible to the public if the weather permits.
The Éva-senécal municipal library has several proposals for young students:
March 5 at 1:30 pm: Let's go to the circus
March 6 at 10:30 am: Wake up to reading
March 6 at 1:30 pm: Games Afternoon March 7 at 1:30 pm: At the Boarding March 8 at 2 pm: Parent-child Yoga March 9 at 10:30: Story time March 9 at 1:30 pm: Cupcake decoration workshop
March 10 at 10:30 am: Story time. A free swim period will also be offered at the Montcalm pool from March 5 to 10, between 1 and 4 pm.
Several Sherbrooke organizations will also be offering activities to occupy locals during the Spring Break. These are listed at sherbrooke.ca/calendrier.
