Rideau Canal Skateway
Ottawa is home to the largest skating rink, with 7,8 kilometres long! The Rideau Canal in Ottawa runs from downtown Ottawa all the way to Dows Lake. Beginners and advanced can enjoy the ice rink, with rest areas, equipment rental shops and cafés. It is no coincidence that the rink receives an average of 1 million visitors each year. The opening is scheduled for January 4, 2019, depending on ice conditions.
