Yes, the Rideau Canal may be closed for the season. However, there are still places where you can continue to skate outdoors. The Sens Rink of Dreams and the outdoor rink at Lansdowne Park are still open (weather pending of course).
Also, the rain and warm temperatures can’t effect indoor skating. CLICK HERE for a list of rinks and enjoy!
