Rideau Canal Skateway

Rideau Canal Skateway

The Skateway winds its way through the heart of Ottawa, over a total length of 7.8 kilometres, stretching from downtown to Dows Lake.

Since the 1970s, our ice experts and other ice experts have worked together to create this popular attraction, striving continually to improve the ice quality. Typically, the skating season runs from early January until early March. In February, many activities take place on the Skateway during Winterlude.

Services are available in the open sections of the Skateway until 10 pm or 11 pm, depending on the day. Hours of operation may change without notice. The public can access open sections of the Skateway 24 hours a day, but should note that caution is advised, as Skateway maintenance crews operate mainly overnight.
