January 06, 2017 The Canal Is Green-Flagged For Skating January 06, 2017/ PTBOCANADA We are doing a triple axel with the news that the green flag is up on the Trent Canal, meaning conditions are safe to skate there! Photo courtesy Harrison Perkins The City of Peterborough tweeted out the news Friday (January 6th) confirming it is now open but adding that the ice is a little rough as it hasn't been flooded yet...Hooray! @TrentSevernNHS Canal is green-flagged for skating. Please be careful, ice is rough. We'll flood early next week weather permitting. pic.twitter.com/ki7ADJhNFS— City of Peterborough (@CityPtbo) January 6, 2017 The canal is open for skating until 10 p.m. daily.Engage with us on social media on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat (ptbo_canada).
