Skating on the Rideau Canal – 2006

Skating on the Rideau Canal – 2006

Although ice skates are the most common form of transportation on the frozen stretches of the Rideau Canal and Dow’s Lake, they are certainly not the only method.

All of that exercise might lead one toward the food and confection outlets that line some parts of the canal. In addition to a pastry product called “Beavertails”, Maple syrup on the snow is also popular. Great way to spoil an appetite before heading home for supper.

During Ottawa’s winter festival, WINTERLUDE, large snow sculptures can often be found in the area of Dow’s Lake on the Rideau Canal system.
