It's certainly no boring old pond.
Fort Saskatchewan's Legacy Park has a new look this winter, as the city redesigned their old snowbank rink.
"We are so excited. We actually have a skating oval loop and we're lighting it up," said Jean Dabels, manager of parks services for the City of Fort Saskatchewan. "Our amazing park staff came up with the idea to put in a skating trail this year."
The ice took weeks for staff to prepare and finish.
All city parks are open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. When it’s dark, the lights around the loop will turn on.
Edmonton has their own two kilometre skating trail at Rundle Park, featuring a shinny pond, a large tableland ice skating surface and a smaller family rink.
The City of Fort Saskatchewan opened their boarded outdoor rinks at Mowat and RCMP Park last week.
