Skating Rink & Lake Ice Update

Posted on Posted in News

*Lakeshore & Lake Access Way Homes* – When posted, Thin Ice signage is applicable to all access points of the lake.

Please be aware – NO DOGS are permitted on the lake ice. This also applies to residents with lake access and lakeshore properties

For your safety, stay off the lake while Thin Ice signs are up.
We ask that everyone, including Lake Shore & Lake Access residents, stay off of the ice/out of the water until ABRA deems it safe. This also means that once open water begins to appear, boats are NOT permitted in the lake until the ABRA has deemed it safe with the green flags.

Please also stay off the ponds in the community. The ponds collect storm water runoff, so during Chinooks water will flow into the pond, making it is extremely unsafe to skate or walk on.

Thin Ice is dangerous. Even though the ice may appear solid on the surface, it may not support a person’s weight. While Thin Ice signs are up around the lake the ice is not safe.
