Although someone tried to prove otherwise Saturday, Andy McRoberts, director of Culture, Parks and Recreation Department said none of the city of Greeley’s lakes or ponds can support ice skating.
Someone appeared to have fallen through the ice on the Greeley West Park’s pond Saturday morning, when fire crews found tracks leading to and from a hole in the ice.
Although weather is just one of the factors that go into the formation of ice, officials said it hasn’t been cold enough lately to freeze ponds and lakes in the area, although Monday could be the exception, with the temperature dropping throughout the day.
In Greeley, the city’s ponds and lakes are aerated, McRoberts said, with air pumped into them to keep down algae, microbe and bacteria buildup. The air also allows for a healthy environment for fish and other animals in the water.
But that constant movement of air is why ice can’t form deep enough — four inches — for people to skate on.
