Glide on a 3-kilometre maze of enchanting skating trails, play hockey on an outdoor rink, or hang out in the heated log barn at this family-friendly winter site in Canada’s capital. Lace up your skates by the fire before hitting the trails that wind up and down hills through orchards, meadows and sugarbushes. Test your skills with your stick and a puck on the trail or join a game of shinny on a rink. Visit in the evening, when twinkling lights and torches light the trail. RiverOak also offers food, family games and even dog-friendly fun on site. This giant winter playground is located just 30 minutes from downtown Ottawa.
