Activities for Kids & Families

As friends of the mountain, we believe in getting children outside from an early age so they learn about and appreciate the environment at their own pace. Our forest school activities, day camps and cross-country ski program give kids (and parents) a fresh outlook on Mount Royal!

Ice Skating

Skate to your heart’s content on the scenic refrigerated ice rink next to the Beaver Lake Pavilion.

Ice Skating

Take advantage of the 2,500 m2 refrigerated  skating rink next to the Beaver Lake Pavilion this winter. Music and light add a touch of magic by day and by night! If you get cold, the Café des Amis food counter offers a variety of hot drinks and comfort food to warm up and enjoy on the go (take-out menu only).
