The world's largest ice rink will not open for the first time due to a mild winter
The famous Canadian skating rink Rideau Canal Skateway, which is the world's largest skating rink with natural ice, will not open for the first time this winter season due to insufficiently cold weather, reports Reuters.
The National Capital Commission, which maintains and operates the Skateway, said their efforts to open the rink this season have come to an end. The average temperature in Ottawa this season was -5.9°Celsius, when the average temperature is usually twice lower.
Rideau Canal Skateway is a canal opened more than 50 years ago. It has a length of 7.8 km and is the main winter attraction for ice skating enthusiasts.
