Wascana Centre Authority in conjunction with the Regina Police Service, Regina Fire & Protective Services, and City of Regina, cautions people to keep off all ice surfaces in the city. Conditions around Wascana Lake and Wascana Creek, neighborhood lakes, storm channels and drainage ditches are very dangerous as warmer temperatures start to weaken the ice.
Keep pets leashed around these areas and do not follow your animal onto the ice surface should they venture that way. Call for assistance.
Although areas may look stable, all ice surfaces in the city are extremely dangerous. Spring weather, underwater aeration systems in Wascana Lake, storm sewer drainage outlets, and runoff water flowing underneath the ice weakens it and wears it down.
Also impacted are all outdoor skating surfaces in the city which are now non-operational until next season.
For safety's sake, please stay off the lakes and other water bodies. If you see anyone in a potentially dangerous situation, on the ice, or near dangerous water, call the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500. In an emergency call 911.
