Happy New Year!
After a relaxing time away, we’re back at work, gearing up for Winterlude and other fun activities.
While the Rideau Canal Skateway has not yet opened for its 40th skating season, the historic rink at Rideau Hall (home and workplace of Canada’s Governor General) has. Free skating is offered on Saturdays and Sundays between noon and 5pm. Groups can inquire about evening reservations during the week.
And many of the city’s 246 outdoor skating rinks in local parks have opened. Check conditions here.
Over the holidays, we went snowshoeing 3 times in Gatineau Park, including a 3-hour marathon that we’ll be talking about for years. It’s easy to stay active in the winter in Ottawa.
