The ice at the park is no longer safe for use. With the warm weather the ice has begun to crack and melt and we feel it is no longer safe to be used to skate on.
On Friday, December 29, 2017, the Parks Crew flooded the area west of the Horseshoe Pit in Forest Park to create an outdoor ice skating rink. The deepest part of the area flooded is approximately 12” deep. With the subzero temperatures over the weekend the water has now frozen and is safe for the public to use for ice skating. We realize this may only last a few days, but feel this is an excellent addition to the park and outdoor recreation activities. As the temperatures rise we will keep the public posted as to when the ice is no longer safe.
