Jones Lake Moncton, NB, 06 Jan 2012 (Facebook)

Although it has been a cold week in Greater Moncton with four nights dipping below -10 C and one night dropping to -15.8 C, ice conditions are still not safe for leisure activities such as skating.

The City of Moncton announced today that Jones Lake and Irishtown Pond still have thin ice.

According to city measurements, the ice is currently 6-8 inches (15-20 cm) thick and the ice needs to be between 10-12 inches (25-30 cm) thick to be deemed safe for public use.

UPDATE – Skating and hockey were deemed safe on Jones Lake as of 08 January and on the same day the City of Moncton opened the community skating rink in the plaza at Moncton City Hall.
