Second lake ice is still pretty rough and will likely be unsuitable for skating until after the coming weather front, according to the Seward Parks and Recreation Department.

In a release detailing maintenance and and campground news, SPRD Officials said they anticipate flooding, hot mopping, or resurfacing the ice sometime next week depending on precipitation and temperatures.

Additionally, SPRD officials stated that the waterfront bike path is an excellent option for winter exercise. According to the release, the SPRD staff has - and will continue to - keep the path plowed and sanded all winter.

Also, pedestrians to avoid the lagoon boardwalk as the walkway is difficult to maintain and usually creates a very uneven walking surface. Alaska State DOT has done an excellent job in maintaining the paved walkway on the east side of the Seward Highway (3rd Ave). This route is a much better option for pedestrian travel.

SPRD officials also reminded residents that playground use is not recommended during the winter months as the safety surfacing is hard and/or frozen. Any users are advised to use extreme caution and adults are encouraged to supervise children at all times.

Any winter maintenance needs, questions, or concerns please contact the PM&C office directly at 907-224-4055 or
