Sledding & Outdoor Skating

Flag System small2/12: The ice on our ponds is NOT thick enough to skate. Please DO NOT attempt to walk on the ice unless you see a Yellow Flag, even then proceed with caution.

During the winter, ice skating and sledding are permitted in selected parks from sunrise to sunset, following an open/close flag system. Important: Supervisors are not on duty at any of the ice rinks or sled hills. If you observe individuals on a pond when a red flag is flying or that does not have a flag system, please call 911 immediately.
