New skating trail (under an orchard) opens near Metcalfe this weekend

By Wayne Scanlan, Ottawa Citizen, January 11, 2018

As a boy skating on the frozen South Castor River, Trevor Jamieson didn’t want to be any place else in the world.

As an adult, Jamieson returned from the city back to rural life near Metcalfe, about 30 kilometres southeast of Ottawa. Skating is a central theme in his new venture.

On Saturday at his property on Yorks Corners Road, about a five-minute drive east of Metcalfe, Jamieson is launching the grand opening for the RiverOak Estates skating trail. There will be kids games, a bonfire and live music from 2 p.m. to 4 pm. At least 1.6 kilometres of skating trail should be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., weather permitting, and as early as next week, another one kilometre-plus of skating trails.
