It's time to dust off those skates.
 
The City of Fort Saskatchewan has opened their boarded outdoor rinks at Mowat and RCMP Park.
 
"There was a few challenges just getting the ice in with the warmer weather we had," said Jean Dabels, manager of parks services.
 
Outdoor rinks are available during park hours, 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Rink shacks at Mowat and RCMP rinks are open Monday to Friday 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Saturday to Sunday and from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
 
"We just ask for everybody's cooperation to keep the rooms clean and obey the rules so that everybody can enjoy themselves," added Dabels.
 
The city would like to remind skaters that ponds may not be safe to skate on and thin ice can make skating extremely unsafe.
 
Legacy Park's skating pond is expected to open on Monday (Dec.10).
