Ice skating at Lily Pond scrubbed until further notice

YOUNGSTOWN

Mill Creek Metroparks closed the Lily Pond to ice skaters Sunday because of higher temperatures over the weekend that weakened the ice. It will remain closed until further notice.

“The safety of our visitors is of the utmost importance, and we are hoping that below-freezing temperatures over the next week will permit us to open the Lily Pond to skaters next weekend,” the MetroParks said in a news release.

Just like I posted last week... the temps rose and turned the ice into slush and created an unsafe condition for anyone foolish enough to risk going out onto the pond.

A TOTAL waste of money and manpower. But that's what can be expected from the Mill Creek Park leadership....no common sense and no accountability.

Not quite sure what money if any was wasted since the work was done by regular employees who were being paid regardless. I guess a public records request could be made to verify if any additional funds were spent.

Its a park - and management of the park took advantage of the conditions to offer some skating on the pond. How about interviewing people who went ice skating - I'll bet you they actually ENJOYED IT!

Hats off to management of the park for making it a park for the people to enjoy.
