It looks like the fun is over at Trout Lake.
As of noon today, the Vancouver Park Board has closed the lake to skating and other ice activities due to forecasts of warmer temperatures and rain.
Park staff say they will assess the conditions daily to see if it’s safe to skate again, but it’s not likely anytime soon.
The park board is also reminding the public no other ponds in the city are considered safe either.
This season was the first in 20 years that temperatures dropped enough to render the lake safe for skating.
Minimum safe thickness of the ice is 12-13 cm (5″).
