Fort Wayne, Ind. – The community is reminded that the ponds at Lakeside, East Swinney, Franke and Reservoir Parks are not open for any activity, including skating, due to the unreliable quality of the ice.
“Our first priority is the safety of our citizens,” said Parks and Recreation Director Steve McDaniel. “There are many environmental factors that influence ice quality, including fluctuating temperatures, snow, rain, wind, and water movement.”
More reliable ice is available at Headwaters Park during public skating hours. Times are subject to change due to special events, rentals and holidays. For more information about skating at Headwaters, call 260-422-7625.
