The City of Lacombe advises residents that due to the prevailing unseasonably warm weather, the Cranna Lake, Royal Oak and Iron Wolf storm water pond ice surfaces have been closed for recreational activities until further notice.
The outdoor rink is also closed.
Parks Services staff will monitor the surfaces until sufficient ice thickness is reached for the designated ponds to be reopened for use.
The ice must reach a minimum thickness of 8 inches (20 centimetres).
‘Thin Ice’ signs have also been posted at the storm water pond in the Lacombe Off-Leash Dog Park.
Pet owners are advised to keep themselves and their pets away from the pond ice surface, as the ice may become unstable at any time.
Please obey all posted signs.
Anyone using the ice surface on a storm water pond does so at their own risk.
