Outdoor ice rinks close for season

(Red Deer, Alberta)

Due to the warm weather, many of the outdoor ice skating surfaces will close for the season after this weekend.

Bower Ponds will remain open as the ice is still in good condition. Crews will be monitoring the ice daily to ensure it is thick enough for public use.

Signs will be placed around the natural water body ice surfaces at West Lake and Anders on the Lake, to notify users of the poor ice conditions and safety risk.

Members of the public are asked to stay safe by obeying all signs and barricades and to keep off areas which are posted as unsafe.
