With a return of colder temperatures these past few days, the ice at Rochester Municipal Park is once again OPEN.
Please note that these conditions can change quickly and that ice is never 100% safe. Please use caution and follow safe practices, including those listed below, when on lake ice:
- Never go out onto the ice alone.
- If you hear a crack or feel a shift, lie down on your stomach and crawl back to shore. This action will help distribute your weight on the unsafe ice.
- Be sure to check the thickness of the ice with tools such as an auger, drill, or ice spud.
