The Rideau Canal joins the Ottawa River with the Rideau River. Every Winter, the National Capital Commission (NCC) turns the Canal into the World's Largest Outdoor Skating Rink. It covers 7.8 K from the downtown core to very near to my home. It has always been part of my Winter in Ottawa and our February party, Winterlude, is held at various locations on the Canal. The skateway is patrolled by Paramedics until 10 pm most nights. The length of its' season varies due to Mother Nature, but the average season is 50 days. Well worth a visit to Ottawa. Thanks for the challenge!
