Ice at park ponds too thin for skating, city says

– Park officials warn that ice on the skating ponds at Lakeside and Ivan Lebamoff Reservoir parks is weak and won’t hold the weight of skaters, so they remain closed.

Cold temperatures and high winds have produced a thin, smooth ice cover on both ponds, which is enticing to skaters.

But park officials warn that cracking is appearing away from the edges and the ice is much thinner than it appears.

While the ponds remain unsafe for skating, red lights and flags will be displayed at the sites.

For more information, call the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department at 427-6000 or visit www.fortwayneparks.org.
