The COVID-19 pandemic has forced a lot of people outside. Many have been relying on the relief of the outdoors as most indoor activities are banned. But people in Chestermere said city officials are making that hard to do.
On Jan. 13, the City of Chestermere announced all frozen storm ponds will be shut down because of safety reasons.
Officials said due to fluctuating water levels and the weak and unpredictable composition of the ice, no activity on storm pond ice is safe.
