CITY ISSUES REMINDER TO STAY OFF THE ICE
AURORA - This time of year several bodies of water have become frozen, but not completely, which is why the City of Aurora is issuing a reminder to "STAY OFF THE ICE" when near the water.
 
People of all ages are tempted to venture out onto the ice, but it is not safe. The surfaces of these bodies of water freeze first, but more often than not, the ice is not solid, making it critically dangerous. Adults are encouraged to remind children about the dangers of going on the ice.
 
Approved Ice Skating Rinks
When temperatures drop low enough for the ice to freeze, the City of Aurora has two approved ice skating rinks that are open at Phillips Park and Garfield Park, from sunrise to 10 p.m. Call ahead to 630-256-INFO to check on the status of City-owned ice rinks.
