Ice rinks

On March 9th and in light of the weather conditions,
the outdoor skating season is over.

Outdoor skating rinks and rings


Maintenance and surface quality

For several years now, climate change has had a non-negligible impact on one of Quebecers' favourite leisure activities: skating!

Frequent and significant variations in weather conditions do not always make it possible to practice this sport continuously, but the municipal team makes every effort to ensure the best possible conditions for the enjoyment of Saint-Lazare residents.

Did you know?

Night shift (2 blue collar workers):

  • A team is assigned from Tuesday 10:30 p.m. to Sunday 7 a.m. to maintain the 8 rinks and rings throughout the territory.
  • To do this, lighting is required (so lights are turned on, if you were wondering).
  • The time required to complete the night maintenance varies depending on the size of the rink or ring, as well as the type and quantity of precipitations.
  • When winter conditions are ideal, the night team succeeds in watering them and bringing any surface correction on the surface of the 8 sites in a single night.
  • However, during a storm or continued precipitations, the team may not be able to complete the snow removal on the 8 rinks and rings, and it is then up to the day team to continue the work.

Day Shift (2 blue collar workers):

  • The day shift continues to maintain the rinks and rings on weekdays, as well as to maintain the sports facilities, chalets, parks and buildings, as well as complete any other work request.

When the weather permits, especially when there are cold temperatures without significant snow precipitation, teams water the rinks and rings:

  • Abundantly to thicken the amount of ice on the ground. This approach prolongs their duration during a thaw.
  • To correct imperfections.

What influences the quality of the ice?

  • Heavy precipitation: snow acts as “blanket” and softens the ice.
  • Mild temperatures also soften the ice.
  • Rain degrades it and creates hazards and imperfections.
  • Skaters, who venture onto the ice when conditions are not favourable, damage the ice.
  • The use of non-compliant equipment (other than skates).

    • After the park is closed.
