Things are starting to look up for us, Ottawa. Both the days and the Rideau Canal Skateway have gotten longer this week, and we may be on the precipice of a cautious reopening. (Maybe. Don’t quote me.) February is the shortest month of the year, so let’s get through it gracefully, with heart and some optimism for the approaching spring!
Rideau Canal Skateway
The National Capital Commission’s ice team has done their part so that a 2.4 kilometre section of the Rideau Canal Skateway will open today.
Welcome to the weekend!
The weather is cooperating, the ice carvers’ chain saws are buzzing and everything’s well underway for the 40th anniversary celebration of Winterlude.
Welcome to the weekend, folks!
This new section brings a total of 7 kiloemetres the length of ice surface now avilable to skaters and visitors.
Most of the 7.8km long skating area opens today. That includes all of Dows Lake.
