Rideau Canal Skateway closes again

The Rideau Canal Skateway has closed to the public for the second time this year.

The National Capital Commission (NCC) announced the closure on Wednesday.

“The Rideau Canal Skateway will temporarily close at 10 p.m. tonight (Wednesday),” wrote the NCC on X. “This will help preserve the ice during the warm temperatures over the next few days. We hope to reopen the Skateway as soon as conditions allow.”

There is no word on when they plan to re-open it again and temperatures aren’t expected to drop until Friday, according to Environment Canada.

Even then, after a quick cold snap into Saturday, Sunday is expected to have above zero temperatures.

The skateway has been open for just over a week this year.
