Parks Winter Activities

December 9, 2008

All Parks maintenance and construction crews are out plowing streets and bike paths. That is Parks Staff's first priority during a snow event.

Sledding - Sledding hills are open and in good condition. The Elver Park Shelter will open on Tuesday at 1:00p.m. and will remain open weather and staffing permitting.

Ski Trails - Staff is packing trails at Elver Park and Odana Hills Golf Course for the next several days. Staff will be setting tracks for classic skiing as soon as possible. We will keep the public notified as trails are open for classic and skate skiing.

Ice Skating - The ice rinks are snow covered and continue to have dangerously thin ice conditions. While the snow is great for skiing, it has an insulating effect on the ice, turning it into slush. Public is advised to stay off the ice. Staff will continue ice maintenance as conditions allow.
