The Saskatoon Fire Department is currently testing and monitoring ice thickness at storm water retention ponds around the city to verify their safety and integrity for skating.

The ice must reach a minimum thickness of at least eight inches to be considered safe for public recreational use such as skating. Signage posted at each pond will indicate whether the pond is safe for use. The sign will display a “No Skating” icon until the ice has been tested and is confirmed safe for public use, at which time a “Skating Permitted” icon will be displayed on the sign.

The City is doing its part slow the spread of COVID-19 cases in Saskatoon. We have made many staffing and service changes so our employees can safely deliver services to residents and to make sure people remain physically apart from one another. This way we can all work together by staying apart – it will protect the health of essential frontline healthcare staff, core service workers and first-responders. These actions in turn protect all of us.
