The Springfield Retention Pond at the RM of Springfield office is open for skating!
This year, the municipality is providing a rink for skating at the retention pond by their building. They are hoping this will help with the ever busy Oakbank Community Club outdoor rinks. They will scrape a large section of the pond, flood the ice and provide benches for lacing up your skates. You can even warm up in the municipal office during normal working hours. There is no set schedule for when the pond will be open or closed, but you can give them a call and they will be more than happy to tell you the condition of the ice. If the retention pond is well received they will look at providing even more next year including a warm-up shack and lighting so people can enjoy in the evenings and weekend as well.
