Jan 2022

Think twice. Don’t go on the ice. Still ponds in our neighborhood may look safe, but they are actually important stormwater facilities with water moving beneath the surface. This makes the ice dangerously unpredictable. Looking for safe places to skate or sled? Read this for new ideas and experiences. #skatesafeyeg

  1. Skating on a stormwater facility could prove deadly. Those still ponds are not as safe as they appear. There is moving water underneath the ice that make them unsafe for all winter activities—even walking. Check out Edmonton’s top 10 places to skate outside. #skatesafeyeg
  2. Sledding on a stormwater facility could prove deadly. Those ponds look safe, but they are treacherously unsafe for all winter activities. Stormwater facilities are important infrastructure that prevent flooding in  your community. Think twice and stay off that ice.
  3. Skiing on a stormwater facility could prove deadly. Those ponds look safe, but they are treacherously unsafe for all winter activities. Think twice and don’t go on the ice. Visit any of our local cross country ski trails—Gold Bar Park, Hawrelak Park and Victoria Golf Course—to stay safe.
  4. Did you know: Stormwater facilities in our neighbourhood are not safe for winter recreation? We have areas in our community, such as community and snowbank rinks, that are safe for you, your family and friends. THINK TWICE and stay away from stormwater facilities. #skatesafeyeg
  5. Our community has a stormwater facility. While it’s beautiful to look at, it’s not a safe place for recreation. THINK TWICE. Stay safe this winter, and visit our community ice rink. #skatesafeyeg
  6. Stormwater facilities may look like a welcoming place for recreation, but underneath the ice, water is constantly moving, making it dangerously unstable. THINK TWICE. Don’t go on the ice. Visit our community rink this winter instead. #skatesafeyeg
  7. Reminder: Don’t use stormwater facilities for recreation! This includes skating, walking or sledding. Our community has great facilities that are safe for you to use. #skatesafeyeg
  8. Help us keep our community safe. Think twice about going on the ice. Those facilities are not as safe as they appear. Check out these great articles featuring the top 10 places to sled and skate in Edmonton this winter. #yegskate
  9. As it warms up, it’s even more important to think twice and stay off the ice. Walk, sled, ski and skate safely and away from stormwater facilities that look like still ponds. There is moving water beneath the surface that makes the ice dangerously thin.
