The National Capital Commission announced on Wednesday that all 7.8 kilometres of the Rideau Canal Skateway will be open to the public, beginning Thursday morning at 8 AM.
The NCC opened up a 3 kilometre stretch from the Concord Rest Area to the Bank Street Bridge earlier this week. The timing of the full opening of the Skateway couldn’t be better, as Winterlude festivities begin this weekend. Winterlude organizers and the NCC were concerned about the Canal during the warmer than normal stretch of weather we had, forcing the Skateway to be closed for two weeks. The cold temperatures this week made the conditions of the ice close to perfect.
Enjoy and happy skating.
