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!
