With temperatures still climbing above freezing, the Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department asks the public to stay off the ice at Terry Trueblood Recreation Area located at 579 McCollister Blvd.

It can be easy to overlook precautions during outdoor recreation, so put safety first by following the signage near the water. Keep children and pets supervised near the ice. A thin coating of ice on the water does not mean it is safe. Thickness and conditions can change quickly.

For more information, contact Juli Seydell Johnson, Parks and Recreation Director, at Juli-SJohnson@iowa-city.org or 319-356-5104.
