2017 Summer Gatineau Parkway Closures
By:  Team XC Ottawa   (2017/06/08)


Every Tuesday and Thursday evening until August 31st, the North Loop (P8-P9) will be closed to traffic for rollerskiing, rollerblading, cycling, etc.. The closure will start at 6:00 and continue until dusk.

After August 31st a new closure schedule will be posted.

Thanks very much to the National Capital Comission, who kindly allows us to use the Gatineau Park as a training location. Thanks to Ian Lennie for coordinating the closures and to the volunteers from the Ottawa Inline Club, Chelsea Nordiq, Nakkertok, Kanata Nordic, Natural FItness Labs and all those who are taking care of the evening closures all summer.

Please remember:

  • If you arrive at the North Loop on a Tuesday/Thursday, and the parkway is NOT closed to traffic, DO NOT proceed to rollerski on the open road. Wait for the parkway to be closed; if no-one comes, then go for a run or something but don't rollerski.

  • ALWAYS wear a helmet if you are using this facility.

  • Please say thank-you to the committed volunteers who are opening and closing the roads.
