Rideau Canal Skateway reopens
Skateway opened for the 2018-19 season on Dec. 30
The entire Rideau Canal Skateway is back from a soggy reprieve.
The 7.8-kilometre skating rink closed Feb. 23 because that weekend's rain and above-zero temperatures could damage the ice's surface.
It got back into shape Wednesday morning.
The skating season began Dec. 30.
The NCC's interactive map tracking ice conditions is updated every morning and early afternoon:
There are also webcams at three locations along the skateway if you want to sneak a peek at how it's looking.
Last season, the canal was open for 35 days between Jan. 5 and Feb. 21.
