Gatineau, January 21st 2015
Brigil is proud to partner with the Ottawa Senators Foundation and the City of Gatineau in the construction of the first SENATORS-BRIGIL rink in Gatineau.
In this inaugural project, BRIGIL and the Ottawa Senators Foundation will share the costs related to the implementation and construction of the rink. Another partner, 24H Tremblant, will also provide a financial contribution towards this first permanent outdoor rink in Gatineau. Additionally, the City of Gatineau will provide the land, lighting and once built, the maintenance and monitoring.
As early as spring 2015, a ground breaking ceremony at Gilbert-Garneau Park will officialise the start of construction. By 2018, a total of 5 permanent outdoor rinks will be constructed in the Gatineau area.
BRIGIL, the Ottawa Senators Foundation, 24H Tremblant and the City of Gatineau all share a common long-term vision to promote physical activity and improve quality of life in the region.
