Montreal Families

March break activities at TOHU

TOHU has put together a whole week of (mostly) free activities for March break that will help keep your little ones active and entertained. The activities are only accessible to residents of the island of Montreal.

Outdoor activities

Free loan of outdoor equipment

Let’s hope we get more snow because once again this year TOHU is offering free rentals of cross-country skis, snowshoes, and kites. Located right beside Frédéric-Back Park, families can pick up their equipment at TOHU and head to the park to ski or snowshoe along two combined nine-kilometre trails. Discover the park’s terrain, visit the large gazebo, and take in the impressive 360-degree city views and public artwork.

Daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Reservations are needed.

Children’s snowshoe courses

Indoor activities

Dance workshops

Danser Le Trésor aims to make young people aware of contemporary dance with a workshop that is adapted for families. Led by professional dancers, the workshop appeals to the creativity and critical sense of young participants and places play and imagination at the centre. Presented in the form of a game, it is done in modules that condense physical, gestural and choreographic approaches.

Every day, from 10 a.m. to 10:45 a.m.
Reservations are needed.

Circus Show — Le trésor

One rainy day, two siblings and their cat are stuck in the house, their noses glued to a window. Boredom quickly gives way to creativity that unfolds as if by magic before the eyes of the spectators. Le trésor takes an illuminating look at childhood and the joy, freedom and spontaneity of play.

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, 11 a.m. to noon.
Reservations are needed.
