Skating & Outdoor Rink Information
As Canadians, skating is in our blood. In Beaumont, it's one of our favourite things to do. All details and information will be listed here for the 2021-2022 season. These will range from announcements, rink statuses, current projects, and special programs the City may be offering. Please stay tuned to this page as it will be our main hub to keep you informed!
- Please use approved parking, and do not park on the surrounding park land.
- Clean up after yourselves, and be considerate of others.
- Rinks may be closed for many reasons, please respect closures.
March 6 Update:
All outdoor rinks are shut down.

July 15 Update:
The grass rink at 56A is officially decommissioned, but the new asphalt unboarded rink in Montalet Park will be ready for use this coming winter.
A brand new outdoor grass rink will open this coming winter, in Montrose Park. The south-west quadrant now has it's own local rink!
June 9 Update:
Final work is being done at Lapointe Park and Montalet Park. The area is being graded, new trails are being built, and netting will be installed. At Montalet, final work included installing a round asphalt pad for an unboarded rink.
January 11 Update:
Both of the new rinks are open! Lapointe Park is ready to go and the lights are on. Montalet Park doesn't have lights quite yet, but we are working on getting them on.
Bellevue Rink is currently being flooded, stay tuned for that rink to be open as well.
January 4 Update:
Are you wondering what to call the new boarded rinks? The rink southeast of the Ken Nichol Rec Centre is the Lapointe Park rink, while the rink east of Dansereau Meadows school is the Montalet Park rink.
Montalet Park is open, and Lapointe Park is being flooded and will open soon.
December 29 Update:
Flooding is underway at the new Dansereau rink. Please be patient while the ice surface is prepared, as using the ice too soon while it is thin and soft will make a mess of the surface that is difficult to repair.
Next up, flooding the new Ken Nichol rink will be starting!
December 21 Update:
The boards are up at the Dansereau rink, and flooding has begun! Lights are in place, but are not yet connected to the utility company. That service is expected early in the new year.
The boards are going up at Ken Nichol, and then flooding will begin. Lighting is ready to go.
We are so close to the inaugural skate on both of the new rinks!
December 2 Update:
The new boarded rinks are on track. Watch for the light poles to go in at the Ken Nichol rink around December 10th. The fences will come down shortly after, and we expect to begin flooding around December 20th!
New Boarded Outdoor Rinks
As part of our commitment to the Our Places and Play: Beaumont’s Recreation, Parks and Facilities Master Plan we are building two new outdoor rinks. One of the new rinks will be located in Park Montalet directly east of the Dansereau Meadows School and the other rink will be directly behind the Ken Nichol Regional Recreation Centre, beside the south parking lot.
Both new rinks will be boarded rinks, and flooded and maintained daily. Ken Nichol Outdoor Rink will be lit, for evening use.
The work has begun and is scheduled to be completed in November.
