Skating a wonderful winter pastime

Susan Jacques

There are six well-maintained ice rinks in the Town of Brome Lake and these may be used from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Locations are: Lions Park, Prouty Park (Bondville), Ovide Dagenais Park (Foster), Edwards Park (West Brome), Davis Park (Fulford) and the skating rink on Douglass Beach.

A trail has also been cleared for skating on Brome Lake and can be used when conditions are favourable.

There is a cross-country ski trail starting at H. Coderre & fils on Victoria and ending at Doucet Road in Foster. Users are asked to be courteous and refrain from walking, biking or snowshoeing on the marked trail.
