Bleu, Blanc, Bouge is the flagship project of the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation. Its goal is to construct refrigerated outdoor skating rinks in the community. The Foundation has donated Cartierville’s ninth outdoor skating rink for children and young people under 17.
The Bleu Blanc Bouge (BBB) rink has a state-of-the-art refrigeration system, and its ice quality meets professional standards.
Sport activities available year-round
The rink is open from December to mid-March for ice sports. After that, its concrete surface may be used for sports such as basketball, soccer and ball hockey, from spring to fall.
2020-21 winter season
Due to COVID-19 and the maximum alert level (red zone) in Montréal, more restrictive measures issued by the government apply to our sports facilities, including the Bleu Blanc Bouge outdoor rink.
Ahuntsic-Cartierville reserves the right to close the rink at any time, without prior notice. The ice is resurfaced periodically depending on its state and weather conditions.
The public can use the exterior rink as long as physical distancing rules, hygiene measures and other conditions issued by the public health department (DSP) are respected.
Capacity limited to 25 people
In order to respect physical distancing measures in red and orange zones, the skating rink capacity has been limited to 25 skaters. This maximum capacity may be revised if the Montréal public health department issues new restrictions.
Due to COVID-19, the skating rink chalet is closed. You must put your skates on outdoors.
In order to respect maximum capacity while avoiding waiting queues, you must register in advance, by telephoning 514-872-6138, for free skating, family hockey play and solo hockey play. If reservation slots are still available, you may reserve in person, on-site, with a staff member, beginning only at 4:30 p.m.
