The colder weather has helped get the outdoor rinks ready for use, but crews still need to make additional floods to prepare the base. PLEASE DO NOT USE THE OUTDOOR RINKS. Signs are posted asking people to stay of the rink surface until the ice is ready for use, and the doors to the rinks have been secured shut. A post will be made on this page and the Whitecourt website when they are ready for public use.
THIN ICE SIGNS REMAIN IN PLACE AT FESTIVAL PARK. The ice depth at Festival Park Pond is NOT safe for use; please obey all "Thin Ice" signs and other posted warnings. Crews will continue to monitor the ice thickness. Park users are asked not to throw items onto the pond as it make it difficult to prep the surface for skating when rocks/sticks are frozen in the ice.
