Outdoor rinks are not flooded! What's going on?


The ice rink in Cathcart park has been unable to be flooded because frost levels for the grass surface are not deep enough to withstand the equipment or to hold the water. Manor Pond is frozen and skatable, but skaters are reminded that lake ice is unpredictable, and parents and skaters should review ice safety and rescue procedures before skating on any lake surface. For Cathcart Park rink, at least one week of consistent zero degree weather is needed. Get complete information on the parks page.
