Klode Park Ice Rink Update:
The Village currently does not have immediate plans to begin forming an ice rink at Klode Park this year. The current 10 day forecast is not favorable for making ice as rain is projected this weekend into Monday. 

Historically, January has been the best month to form an ice rink. However, so far this year, it has not been possible due to above average temperatures in early and mid-January and then the extremely cold temperatures last week.

Village priorities, as winter progresses, will be to focus manpower on snow plowing, deicing streets, and hauling snow from the business district area on Silver Spring. 

What conditions are needed to make ice at Klode Park?
  • It typically takes 5 consecutive nights (without snow) to build up minimum base of 4 to 5 inches of ice. In order to be successful during those 5 consecutive nights, temperatures should be 15 degrees or below with day or night high temperatures not exceeding the lower 20’s.

News from the Health Department:

Did you know? Winter weather creates dangerous conditions including icy, snow and sleet covered roads. In Wisconsin, these conditions are responsible for an average of 50,000 vehicle crashes and 45 deaths each winter.

Although winter is familiar to Wisconsinites, extreme cold, snow, ice, rain, and sleet place all of us at risk. Winter can be especially difficult for older adults, young children, people who are socially isolated, and those with low economic status.

Check out the the North Shore Health Department website for key reminders about staying safe this winter.
