Built between 1826 and 1832 to help defend Canada against a feared U.S. invasion, the Rideau Canal winds gracefully through the Glebe. The world’s largest skating rink in the winter, the Canal is popular year round with paddlers, boaters, bikers and runners. Until September, visit 375 Queen Elizabeth Dr. for non-motorized boat rentals.
