Thin Ice report from Parks

December 9, 2013 1:57 PM

WOW! It's cold out there!
Who left the refrigerator door open?? Baby – it is COLD outside. While this means making sure those kids are bundled up before heading off to school – it also means great weather to make ICE. Although NONE of the outdoor ice rinks are currently open, if this current cold snap holds, Madison Parks anticipates having some of the outdoor ice rinks ready for skating before or during the Winter Break! This early cold snap has at least one silver lining!

On a daily basis, Madison Parks will monitor conditions and will be working on the outdoor ice rinks.  Be sure to check the City of Madison Parks Winter website for daily updates.

It is very important that people heed the warnings of thin ice. The lagoons at Tenney, Warner and Vilas Parks are over 5 feet deep. Again - none of the ice rinks are open yet. Madison Parks will open the ice rinks for skating as soon as it is safe.
