Village Mammouth at Olympic Stadium

village mammouth2Despite the fact that Montrealers have been upset about the Olympic Stadium pretty much since it was built there are some cool things that happen there. When not being used for One Direction concerts or Toronto Blue Jays preseason games, there have been some seasonal activities happening around the Olympic Stadium environment. Throughout the summer the Esplanade Sun Life is home on the first Friday of each month to food trucks.  Now throughout the winter the same area will host some winter time fun.

 

On the Esplanade Sun Life there is an NHL size hockey rink which you can reserve for pick-up games at specific times or go for a skate others.  Skates are available to rent if you don’t have any.  Right alongside that there is an 18-metre long slide which the whole family can have fun on.

 

From Thursday to Sunday there will be concession stands there serving food and beverages to eat during your breaks from skating or sliding.  Plus there are heated areas to keep warm in while you are not moving.  On the weekend the area turns up the fun and a DJ will be there providing music.

 

There is even a cool deal for holders of STM passes.  On Thursdays with your pass you get into the skating rink for free.

 

Of course, like everything in Montreal this outdoor facility’s functioning depends on the weather.  If you are in doubt if Village Mammouth is open or closed then look on the website: www.villagemammouth.com.
