Skating Prohibited on Stormwater Lakes !

City Drainage Bylaw 16200 prohibits skating on stormwater lakes.

The City has signage posted at all stormwater facilities advising residents to keep off the ice because conditions are unknown. Due to the nature and the function of stormwater lakes, ice conditions can be unpredictable and dangerous. Moving water, temperature changes underwater due to vegetation or drainage and fluctuating weather conditions can all result in unsafe ice conditions not visible from the surface.
