Winter warm-up back on for Stuart Park skaters

December 20, 2018
Public service announcement

Skaters at Stuart Park will have the chance to warm themselves by the fire this winter. The gas fire pit located at the north end of the rink is now lit for the season. It is scheduled to be on weekdays between 3 p.m. and 10 p.m., and on weekends, statutory holidays and during the school break between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. unless otherwise posted.

Thanks to the public’s conservation efforts, the natural gas pipeline returning to 85 per cent operating capacity, mild winter weather and healthy storage levels, B.C.’s natural gas supply outlook is more optimistic. FortisBC has reported that, for now, ongoing additional conservation actions are no longer necessary. The City’s swimming pools and other facilities will also be returning to normal heating levels.
