The City of Fort Saskatchewan has started preparing its outdoor rinks for the season, but opening the ice to eager skaters could be delayed by a week.
Right now, the city is waiting to see how the weather plays out this weekend.
“Looking at the long term forecast it appears that by the next week we should be back into the -8 degree range, so it probably would delay us about a week,” estimated Jean Dabels, the city’s parks services manager.
She remains hopeful that the RCMP boarded rink will still open on Monday, Nov. 27 with Mowatt and all the leisure ices to follow on December 1.
“I know everybody’s looking forward to getting out there and getting on the ice to skate,” said Dabels.
The city will provide an update, when available.
