 PARKS, NATURAL AREAS, TRAILS

  • Never walk on frozen ponds or other water features. You never know how thick the ice is or how deep the water is below.
  • In cold temperatures, 'black ice' can easily be disguised when left behind by melting snow or rain. People traveling by bike or on foot should use caution and be safe.
