As winter approaches, many outdoor enthusiasts enjoy spending time ice-skating, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, broom balling, and playing hockey on our frozen lakes and ponds. The City of Lacombe allows residents to use local storm water ponds - at their own risk - for recreational activities once the ice reaches a suitable thickness. Please obey to all signage pertaining to ice safety.
