    TOHU, Parc Frédéric-Back and at home

This year more than ever, family entertainment is welcome for spring break. As usual, TOHU is offering Montreal families several surprising activities that will brighten up the first days of March. Lending cross-country skis and snowshoes to enjoy parc Frédéric-Back, free snow sculpting activities in TOHU's public square, virtual clown art workshops and a first series of podcasts are part of the program.

TOHU's free activities are presented thanks to the financial contribution of the City of Montreal.

TOHU Hiver2021 Chantal Levesque 24

For a third year, TOHU is offering the loan of cross-country ski and snowshoe equipment, allowing Montreal families to enjoy parc Frédéric-Back. With its two marked trails totalling 7.5 km, this park, unique in North America, is without a doubt the destination for outdoor activity in the heart of the city. A great opportunity to learn about these popular sports! In order to respect sanitary measures, registration is mandatory to borrow equipment. Parc Frédéric-Back is also accessible to those who have their own equipment.

The loan of cross-country skis and snowshoes is accessible only to residents of the island of Montreal and is part of the Active Park initiatives, a program powered by Sport et Loisir de l'île de Montréal (SLIM) and made possible thanks to the financial contribution of Kino-Québec and the Ministère de l'Éducation, in collaboration with the City of Montreal.

Ten time slots available per day, between 10 am and 4 pm.
Family bubbles for up to 7 people.

*Due to weather conditions, only the loan of snowshoes is available for the spring break, from March 1st to March 7th.

Outdoor exhibition

Discover Résidence in situ Saint-Michel, TOHU's new outdoor exhibition. Photographer Caroline Hayeur went to meet citizens by showing them archival photos dating back to the 1960s in order to create a new image whose final result is a mise en abyme of similarities and contrasts. Convenience stores, low-rent housing, Metropolitan Highway, parc Frédéric-Back: her juxtapositions of images underline the character traits of this unique neighbourhood on the island of Montreal. With a lively and affectionate look, she has captured moments of daily life in which everyone can recognize themselves.

The Résidence in situ photography creation program, now in its 4th edition, is the result of a collaboration between Maison photo Montréal and the Archives de la Ville de Montréal, whose objective is to generate through images a dialogue between the past and present of a territory.
