Patterson Creek is an inlet of the Rideau Canal in the Glebe. Given the topography of the land around it, which consists of our Central Park, it is likely that the creek was a natural one that preceded the building of the Canal itself. Two hundred metres of this area are included in the Skateway each winter, providing for skaters who might just be getting started with a bit of a quieter stretch of ice than the rest of the Canal.
Here we have views of the bridge leading in and out of the creek, to the same area I showed you in yesterday's post.
Back in the creek itself, I took a stroll down to where the ice is fully cleared. It's an island in the creek with trees on it.
Then I turned around and headed back for the stairs to continue my way downtown.
The path from here includes a view of the Pretoria Bridge, which I showed you earlier in the series. This ends my posts of the Skateway over Winterlude. Tomorrow we're returning to Confederation Park to begin the final set of posts on the event.
