Bromont montagne d’Experiences is redeveloping a sector of its water park with five million dollars from the Quebec government as part of the Tourism Recovery Assistance Program (PARIT).
The company takes 6 million out of pocket to add to the investment.
“It’s a dream come true (…) Now, we can offer an extraordinary experience to people between the ages of 10 and 30,” said Charles Désourdy, President of Bromont, Mountain of Experiences.
The organization intends to redesign and expand the lake sector in Tarzan. Work will begin next September when the water park closes and is expected to continue through the summer of 2025.
The work will not affect summer 2024 operations, Mr. DeSurty noted.
Tourism Minister Caroline Proulx was passing through the area. He took the opportunity to announce this news.
Asked about the state of tourism businesses that could be affected by the rains, he offers advice to vacationers.
“I was hiking in the rain on my vacation,” he said. I didn’t let the weather dictate my plans, I took my poles and played it safe. Summer vacations in Quebec are limited and you should make the most of it and enjoy every moment […]. We are not made of chocolate!”
Summer rain fell in Estrey. With 310 millimeters of rain, many efforts have been made to restore the region’s tourism image, said Lysandre Michaud-Verreault, director of representation and communications for Tourisme Cantons-de-l’Est.
“We’ve done a lot of promoting our part of the country to Ontarians and Americans,” he said. It is important for us to invite them to visit despite the bad weather […]. It is certain that the weather has many impacts on tourism in the region, especially outdoor activities.
For now, it’s too early to release an estimate for the summer of 2023.
