Each winter, the historic Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, becomes the Rideau Canal Skateway, the world’s largest skating rink.
The new 2.4-kilometre railing will stretch from Dows Lake to Hog’s Back Road, and will retain the existing signature look of the Rideau Canal.
On both sides of the Rideau Canal, pathways that provide access to the Rideau Canal Skateway are cleared of snow.
You can go boating on the Ottawa River and the Rideau Canal in Canada’s Capital Greenbelt.
