Outdoor Activities

First built in 1872, Rideau Hall Skating Rink is a historical ice skating rink. Started by the then-governor general of Canada, Earl of Dufferin, the rink was host to many skating parties and events. The skating rink has now been restored and is open to the public every weekend from January to March. It comes with amenities like a skating hut heated with a wooden stove. Skaters can also listen to peppy music while they are skating on the ice rink. Since the skating rink is situated in the grounds of the governor-general’s house, calling ahead before deciding to make a visit is advisable.
