Due to the recent warm weather, the ice in Strathmore is no longer thick enough to support recreational activities.

Kinsmen Lake, Strathmore Lake, and the Lions Regional Outdoor Rink are unsafe to use.

“Ice should be a minimum of 8” (20cm) for groups of skaters and 6” (15 cm) for walking or skating alone,” said Deana Connington, Parks Supervisor with the Town of Strathmore.

The Operations Team is routinely checking the ice thickness at Kinsmen and Strathmore Lake and is encouraging people to stay off the ice until the areas are marked safe for use.
