  • Ponds - Ice Skating (outdoor)
    • The ponds at City Park are closed for the season. While the weather may get colder, it is still not safe to skate on these ponds due to the water flows under the ice. The water movement can create weak spots even as the weather gets colder. Ice-covered by snow is unsafe as the snow acts as an insulating blanket and can make the ice weaker, reducing how much weight an ice sheet can support. Parents, please have this safety discussion with your kids. We ask for everyone’s cooperation for safety. Thank you!
