Save Bellevue Rink
Bellevue Rink needs our help. Parks and Recreation Committee has made a recommendation to the City of Beaumont to close and remove Bellevue Rink and return the land to its original condition. We feel this rink is a big part of not only Ecole Bellevue but also the Beaumont Community!
It was our understanding, as posted on various media sites (beaumont.ab.ca and Facebook on June 3, 2020), that the Bellevue rink was moving forward with a renovation on its existing site. Since that time, no other communication has been given or advertised.
The Bellevue Rink has been in our community for many, many years. We believe that there has been a rink in this location for over 40 years. The City of Beaumont made a priority this year to increase more public outdoor recreation spaces. Having this rink fits with this goal.
Bellevue School promotes active living and uses the space for recess, PE, Active for Life program and classrooms. The space is not just used for skating, but also used throughout the year for other sports, and activities. From basketball, soccer, street hockey, four square, skipping and a bunch more. It would be concerning, to have it removed.
Through out the winter this rink is used daily by skaters of all ages, the size and central location of this rink makes it prefect for a pick up game as well as a family skate. This past year was a disappointing year for anyone wanting to use the Bellevue Rink as it was the last rink in the community to be flood. Parks and Recreation did not start the flooding process till January 11. At this point many other rinks were ready for use while Bellevue sat empty.
