In addition, they'll be drilling and pouring caissons, which will also result in loud noises, particularly to surrounding neighborhoods. Finally, they'll be screening the dirt and river rock - the process of removing material from the river and screening for reuse - which may likely cause loud noises.

LaVern M. Johnson Ice Rink

LaVern M. Johnson Park was designed to incorporate a weather-dependent ice rink atop the enclosed grassy area, at the west end of the park. The rink's ice is completely dependent upon below freezing weather, as we do not have a chiller or other freezing equipment.

To begin establishing the rink for the season, temperatures need to be below freezing for at least seven consistent days. The Parks and Public Works team are keeping a close watch on weather forecasts, with the intent to open the rink this winter, as weather permits. 

Stay tuned for updates on the ice rink... and hope for some cold weather!
