Lake Ice Measurements

Ice Depths

Each winter once there has been a significant and extended period of cold weather, the City will measure and post current ice thickness around the lake, and recreational use of the City’s maintained ice rinks can begin for the winter season. 

This information is provided as a courtesy by the City. 

Please check the ice thickness before you go and note that you use the lake at your own risk.
