Rideau Canal Skateway temporarily closed amid warm weather in Ottawa

The Rideau Canal Skateway is closed temporarily this week as temperatures are set to rise above 0 C.

The canal closed to skaters at pm on Monday, the National Capital Commission said.

The NCC, which operates the iconic skating rink, said in an update on its website that “adverse weather conditions” are set to make the ice unsuitable for use.

“The milder weather in the forecast and the snowfall contribute to the formation of cracks on the ice surface, in addition to dangerous holes which can be hidden under the snow,” the Crown corporation said.
