The warm weather has made the pond at Muskoseepi Park unsafe to skate on for the time being.

Muskoseepi Park Pond Closed
Skaters are asked to avoid using the Muskoseepi Park pond during the current mild conditions.
The warm weather the City has had over the past week has caused the ice surface to become slushy and possibly dangerous. Park staff hope to maintain the ice enough so that it can be used again if the weather gets cold.
“There are safety concerns if we get any amount people out on the skating pond right now,” says Muskoseepi Park Customer Services Manager Chad Cronk. “It is not an immediate threat but the warm weather has definitely comprised the thickness and strength of the ice. The forecast indicates continued warm weather.”
