Le Taz sports centre recently opened a new permanent attraction called tunnel-89. Inspired by the gritty urban underground, the tunnel allows kids to climb over blocks, scale metal structures and hide in various nooks and crannies. To add to the experience, Montreal-based art group Art du common has painted a sprawling mural across the zone, giving the space an authentic, cool, underground feeling.
This centre caters to youth of all ages interested in alternative sports like skateboarding, rollerblading, inline skating and BMX. Other recent additions include a permanent rock-climbing wall and a playground open to kids of all ages. The skate park underwent a redesign this year to include new ramps and rails.
During spring break, the first week of March, Le Taz will be open Monday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and will be offering extended hours throughout the rest of the week.
Also, Le Taz has introduced new family pricing; $20 for one parent and one child, or $30 for a family of four. For students, admission is $12.50 and for parents who would prefer to relax, admission is free. The activities are all supervised.
There is a snack bar, pro shop and space just for families. And there are courses for kids, parent and child, and a space for birthday parties.
