New place to skate - An old apple orchard in Metcalfe

For those who embrace all things winter, rejoice!!!

This is your year! (ok, well, minus the wonky temperatures that are messing with ice surfaces and everything else)

Here in town, we have the Canada 150 Rink at Parliament, the Rink of Dreams and the Rideau Canal Skateway.

Then there’s the north option – Lac-des-Loups, north of Gatineau Park where you can skate through a FOREST!


And now – coming to the south – you can skate through an old apple orchard in Metcalfe at RiverOak Estates!


Hours vary so you’ll definitely want to check before heading to any of these amazing gems. So cool that people are opening up their properties to the public – at totally reasonable prices (~$10)!

Tim and I have yet to try either of the forest trails, but we did make it on the canal earlier this week, before it was temporarily shut down because of the thaw.


We’ve also been to the Canada 150 rink.


Happy skating (or shuffling)!!!
