Grand Splash – Trois-Rivières 2022

July 1 @ 10h00 - 12h00

The Grand Splash in Trois-Rivières is a free festive event that will take place at the beach of Île Saint-Quentin. Citizens will jump into the water safely and the water should be clean for swimming. A water quality test will be conducted the same day.
the same day.

With this gesture, citizens aim to raise awareness and mobilize a large public, as well as municipal officials, on the importance of providing public access to swimming on the Saint-Maurice and St. Lawrence rivers and ensuring water quality.  Registration is mandatory.

Admission to the site will be free for the first 50 participants!

A shuttle will be available between 10:00 and 10:45 a.m. from the Salamandre parking lot (located before the bridge) to the site to avoid parking fees. However, you can still get there by bike or on foot. If you wish to go to the site by car, the entrance to the site is free, but parking fees will be charged according to the current rates. Carpooling is encouraged!

We invite you after the Grand Splash activity to stay with us and enjoy free access to the island for the rest of the day. Bring your beach towel, your gougounes, your lunch and your water bottle. The beach site is in shallow water, you can bring your flotation jacket if needed.

You will find the rules and regulations and the new fees in effect for Île Saint-Quentin.

We look forward to seeing you in the water!

Honorary presidency

The Grand Splash 2022 in Trois-Rivières will be under the honorary presidency of our Paralympic athlete Yves Bourque.

“I am proud to act as honorary president of the Grand Splash because facilitating free access to water for all is essential to practice aquatic and nautical activities and to train to stay in shape whether you are an athlete or not!

This multidisciplinary athlete, born without legs, participated in the 2014 and 2018 Paralympic Games and continues to train in paranordic skiing. Enjoying new challenges, Yves has been training for the 2018 Para-canoe Games.
