Matthews and Kin Park skating surfaces ready for the public

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – With the extreme changes in weather so far this winter season, skating surfaces in Fort St. John are in skateable conditions.

The Matthews Park skating loop has been getting lots of use throughout January, as the City hasn’t received any complaints about the ice.

“The ice remains in good shape,” said Director of Facilities and Grounds Robin Langille. “The surface has been seeing a lot of use over the last three weeks even with the weather.”

The Kin Park outdoor rink is in slightly worse shape and hasn’t seen as much use even though the surface has been in place for a few weeks.

“The hockey rink at Kin Park is a work in progress,” added Langille. “The edges are still a little rough and the middle is okay at this point. We will need the weather to cooperate to flood and get the ice up to par. The perfect weather for making ice is the minus eight to ten range.”

With the weather expected to plateau at around minus 10 starting next week, the ice surfaces should only get better during that time.
