Eisenhower Park's Ice Age

The frigid temperatures have left Eisenhower Park quiet and vacant, and the pond that separates the firefighter's memorial and the September 11 memorial is covered in ice.

Not even the usual Geese (other than the wooden ones) are on hand, as the cold has kept everyone away. 

Not to fear, as the cold streak is expected to ease up Wednesday afternoon. In the meantime, here are some Red Cross tips on staying safe in this bitter cold.

not to mention it needs at least 4 inches to be safe ... that is nowhere near that

Aaron the pond is only 2 feet deep, it's not dangerous.

so because the pond freezes over some winters they shouldn't build rinks in the park? Oh the hockey game is cancelled tonight, Johnny fell in during warm-ups. If they didn't charge the people to use it, wouldn't there be way too many people showing up for free ice skating every hour they are open. If they didn't charge for it, how would the developer pay employees, recoup the construction costs, pay for the insurance, etc. If they didn't charge for it wouldn't the whole county have to pay additional taxes to pay for it. Now primarily the people using it will have to pay for it.

They should charge as much as they want if it was built on land that they actually purchased. This whole deal stinks the way it was put into the park without a vote from residents. Johnny has plenty of town, county and private ice rinks to play organized sports. Johnny should get out more on his own and explore the world instead of being coddled by mommy and daddy.
