Aware that March Break is going to be a challenge for parents this year and determined to continue to stimulate its living environments, the City of Rosemère has organized several activities, both online and outdoors, that are bound to please the whole family.

Rosemerites are therefore invited to be entertained in the comfort of their own home or to enjoy the parks and recreational facilities to take advantage of winter’s pleasures, while complying with public health guidelines. Access will be reserved for residents, who will be required to have their Citizen’s Card with them at all times.

“Recreational activities are few and far between during this pandemic. It’s important for us to show Rosemerites that we’re here for them and that our wonderful community spirit is still alive, despite social distancing. It’s a way to help keep their morale up and encourage them to continue their efforts to curb the spread of the virus,” explained Mayor Éric Westram.
