Full length of Rideau Canal Skateway to be open on Sunday

The full 7.8 kilometres of the Rideau Canal Skateway will be open on Sunday, the National Capital Commission has announced.

The last 600-metre section of the skateway from the Rideau rest area to the Laurier Bridge will open at 12 noon Sunday, the NCC announced Saturday.

The 49th skateway season began Dec. 30 with the opening of 2.7 kilometres from the Pretoria Bridge to the Bank Street Bridge. Another one-kilometre section opened Jan. 4, but unfavourable weather conditions led to the closure of the full length of the surface last weekend, followed by the reopening of 7.2 kilometres on Friday.
