Winter Activities January 13

Tuesday, January 13, 2009 - 5:38am

With each snowfall, we like to remind the public that park staff's immediate priority is for public safety. Staff will be plowing streets, sidewalks and bike trails. Ice Rink and Ski Trail maintenance will resume after those jobs are completed.

Ice Skating Rinks:
On Tuesday, Elver, Tenney and Vilas Park skating rinks will be open. Tenney and Vilas Park rinks are open Mon-Fri, 2p.m.-9:30p.m. and Elver Park is open 4p.m.-9:30p.m.

Ski Trails:
On Tuesday, staff will be packing and grooming the ski trails at Elver Park and Odana Golf Course. On Tuesday, staff will also be setting track at Elver Park.

Sledding Hills
Conditions continue to be good for sledding. Sledding hills are located in Warner Park, Berkley Park, Olbrich Park, Heistand Park and Elver Park. Parks Staff reminds everyone to have fun, be safe and respect your fellow sledders. Bring your own sleds. Keep a safe distance from others when sledding. Exit the bottom of the hill as quickly as possible. Walk up the hill using the side of the hill. And remember, the use of the sledding hill is at your own risk.
