Fisherman’s Lake looks a little different for skating this year. We have prepared a very large skating oval (the entire perimeter of the lake!) to ensure ease of social distancing and ample opportunity for young and old to enjoy time on the ice with their cohorts. We will continue to work on ice surface conditions.


In keeping with provincial guidance for outdoor winter recreation, the following safety measures will be in effect:


  • Maintain 2 metres of distance from those not in your household. Wear a mask when physical distancing is not possible
  • Hockey is not permitted on the community groomed lakes. No shinny/ tag/ pick-up games.


As always:

  • Stay home if you’re sick
  • Practice good hand hygiene
  • Cover coughs and sneezes


A similar skating track is planned to open on Clearwater Lake in early 2021. A lower than anticipated lake level has prevented access by our maintenance crew and any required equipment.


Best wishes for a safe, healthy and happy 2021!
