Get your blades sharpened Ottawa.
The beloved Rideau Canal Skateway opened for business Sunday morning at 8 a.m.
The NCC announced a 2.7-kilometre stretch of the iconic attraction will be available, between the Bank Street and Pretoria bridges and including the the Patterson Creek arm.
The weather is looking pretty skate-friendly, opening with a mix of sun and cloud, becoming cloudier in the afternoon with a 60 per cent chance of flurries.
By mid-afternoon Sunday the NCC rated the open section as fair. Cold weather is forecast for Sunday night, but the high will reach 0 C both Monday and Tuesday before cold weather returns.
