What to do in the great outdoors in January in Quebec
We build a backyard skating rink and play Canada’s favourite pastime!
~ Ingrid, LU staff
I like going for walks with my daughter downtown–and if it gets too cold, we just stop in and browse at one of the boutiques!
~ Jan, LU tutor
Last Sunday afternoon I went for a walk in a neighbourhood I did not really know – Villeray. We explored Jarry Park and wandered the streets admiring the older homes that have such character. It was a really nice way to pass a winter afternoon.
~ Catherine, LU tutor
I Nordic walk 3 times/week with a friend at Centennial Park in DDO – keeps me fit and pushes me out the door in winter, which admittedly, is NOT my favourite season! If you’re looking for a lovely park to enjoy, I recommend this one – walking, skating, and sledding.
~ Carolyn, LU tutor
When it is really cold outside, I put on a lot of layers of clothing. It then is hard for me to put on my boots. Then I go for a walk and I start sweating because I am too hot.
~ Carmelino, LU member
I go walking on the frozen river and look at the ice fishers ~ it’s crazy!
