A 4.4-kilometre portion of the Rideau Canal Skateway opened at 8 a.m. Saturday, kicking off the 47th season of the world’s largest skating rink.

The early reviews indicated ice conditions were mostly good on the stretch between the Laurier Avenue Bridge and Bronson Avenue Bridge.

Other sections will follow as soon as ice conditions are safe and weather permits, according to the National Capital Commission.
