With the compulsory confinement of the government, the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion has adapted its activities for the holiday season. It offers a variety of activities for the whole family to keep residents entertained during this difficult time.
The skating rinks will soon be operational in the city. As the government instructions specify, they will be able to host hockey games with a maximum of 8 participants.
“Residents don’t have a lot of activities to do during the winter vacation, said France Lavoie, director of communications for the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion. It is our duty to have safe activities accessible to citizens.”
The indoor ice rinks at the Vaudreuil-Dorion arena are also open during the holiday season. Mrs. Lavoie mentions that the time slots for free skating will be increased in order to satisfy as many people as possible. The full schedule can be found on the city of Vaudreuil-Dorion website.
The municipal administration announces that as of December 23rd, it will be possible to borrow various equipment in four parks, upon presentation of the citizen card. These are the Maison-Valois, Dorion-Gardens, Bel-Air and Briand parks where it will be possible to borrow, among other things, snowshoes, racks for skating and snow toys. The city would like to point out that the loans will begin when weather conditions allow.
Sound and light experience
Vaudreuil-Dorion announces that the Lumin’Art artistic exhibition will be extended until January 10th, 2021 in the park located at 405, ave Saint-Charles. The city invites people to admire the huge illuminated Christmas balls created by artists Lucie Bisson, Monika Brinkman, Diane Collet, Philippe Corriveau, Annouchka Gravel Galouchko, Luzon, John McRae, Deirdre Potash, Lundi Radieux and Tina Struthers.

“The exhibition is a staple of the holidays, says the director of communications. The artists have made great works of art and I invite people to take a look. It really is a great experience.”
