Outdoor rink season is almost here! 

"With the warm weather and freeze/thaw patterns, it's been a challenge to get the ice ready; however, flooding officially began on January 8 at the outdoor rink," the Town of Strathmore said in a Facebook post. 

The Town also urges the community to stay off the ice as it isn't quite ready for use and could be fatal.

"Using the rink before it's ready damages the ice during the natural ice-building process and leads to repair time that delays the opening." 

Keep posted to the Town of Strathmore's Facebook to see when the rink will be ready for use.
