NCC will open longer stretch of Rideau Canal Skateway on Sunday

Article content

We’re not all the way there yet, but one good thing to come out of a stretch of really cold weather is that a longer stretch of the Rideau Canal Skateway will be open to skaters as of Sunday at 8 a.m.

The National Capital Commission announced Saturday evening that the green flag for skating would be going up on the 5.7-kilometre span from Delaware Street, just southwest of the University of Ottawa campus, to Bronson Street, including Dow’s Lake.

On Thursday, the 51st season of skating on the Canal began on a 2.4-kilometre stretch between the Pretoria and Bank Street bridges. Skating conditions in that area were listed as “fair,” but “poor” on the adjacent area at Patterson Creek.

The NCC reminded those intending to get some exercise on the Skateway that concessions, rentals, picnic table and fire pits were not available because of public health measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Users are also asked to wear masks or face coverings where required and whenever physical distancing of two metres from other skaters is not possible.

“Our teams are working to open the full (7.8-kilometre) length of the Skateway as soon as possible,” the NCC posted on Twitter. “Stay tuned for updates!”
