Local skating ponds closed this weekend

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 - 7:51 am

The skating ponds at Lakeside, East Swinney, Franke and Reservoir Parks will remain closed to skaters this weekend due to thin ice and the forecast of above freezing temperatures, according to a press release from Fort Wayne Parks & Recreation. The department will have the red lights and flags at the ponds to indicate that conditions are not safe.

More reliable ice is available at Headwaters Park during public skating hours. These public skating times are subject to change due to special events, rentals and holidays.
