Skating on the Kentlands and Lakelands Lakes is Prohibited!

The frozen lakes look inviting, but please do not attempt to play or skate on any of the lakes in Kentlands and Lakelands.  The ice could give way and you would fall into freezing water!  If this were to happen, it could prove fatal before rescuers could reach the scene.  Talk to your children about the extreme danger of playing on the ice or the rocks surrounding the lakes.

Even though the ice looks stable, our lakes double as a storm drainage network. This means that the level of water under the ice may be lowering.  In addition, the water is constantly moving under the ice, thus further contributing to a very dangerous environment.  An adult can lose motor skills within a minute of being in freezing water and it's even faster for a child.

If you see anyone skating or playing on the lakes, please call the police non-emergency number at 301-279-8000 to report this activity.

Thanks, Rob. This morning, we have a very thin layer of ice on everything.  Steps and walkways are too slippery to safely use.  We're staying inside for a while.

Have a great day.

Terrific post Roy, those frozen waters are very inviting to the kids and they must know the danger involved.

Seldom have to worry about frozen ponds around here, but it seems like everytime a little ice gets on the water someone falls in.

With the mild winter we have been having, I would imagine skating on a lake could be very dangerous.
