Winter Safety: No Skating or Tobogganing
With the cold winter weather approaching, the City of Burnaby reminds the public that all lakes and ponds in Burnaby are not open for outdoor skating due to unsafe conditions. Burnaby’s lakes are fed by streams which are moving water, creating unstable ice conditions. The winter weather can give a false sense of safety about the ice conditions and put outdoor enthusiasts at risk. The weather on the west coast rarely creates outdoor skating conditions. There needs to be long periods of sub zero centigrade temperatures in order to freeze a significant layer of ice on the lakes. Warning signs have been posted at the most popular sites at Deer Lake and Burnaby Lake to inform people about the danger.
In addition, the public is encouraged not to toboggan on Burnaby Mountain. The steep slopes produce conditions for people to pick up high speeds and obstacles such as rocks and trees create unsafe conditions for tobogganing and sledding on Burnaby Mountain.
