Important Notices

Operational Update - February 4th, 2021
Currently all rinks are open.

The toboggan hill is open

Ice fishing is open

As weather conditions change in the next few days, ice surfaces could open and close with very little notice as they become unskatable. Please call the office for up to date information, especially if it is actively snowing.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Operational Update - January 28, 2021
Good Afternoon

We are excited to announce that the toboggan hill is now open. It is not in perfect condition but is usable. It will improve with more snow.

We are also opening the lake rinks for pleasure skating only. They are in rough (poor condition) but are skatable. We need more ice thinkness to get heavier equipment on the ice.

Guests are still limited to 2 per household per day.

Thank you everyone for your continued patience and understanding.

Operational Update - January 22, 2021
Good Afternoon Everyone,

Effective immediately we are permitting members to admit 2 guests per household per day.

The lake is now open for ice fishing. Please avoid drilling holes in the vicinity of the toboggan hill, ice rinks or lake front home owner properties.

We expect to open the 3 rinks on the lake for skating one day next week.

It is not likely that we will be able to re-install the skate path this season. The quality of the ice is too poor and Provincial standards we must now follow will not permit us to use heavy equipment on the ice unless we have a uniform thickness of at least 38cm. Currently we have between 30-40cm of ice.

Please continue to practice social distancing while in the park and do remember that skate change areas are located outside of the Lake House. Face masks must be worn inside the Lake House, even if you are just using the washroom.

Thank you everyone for your understanding.

Operational Update
Due to weather related challenges and to ensure that we can provide residents with a safe and healthy experience, the park will be open for tobogganing only on December 22nd. Looking forward to December 23rd and 24th, we hope to be able to welcome you for limited skating and tobogganing activities. We will do our best to provide skating as soon as possible.

Regarding Christmas Day, several factors have impacted our operational resilience and made it necessary for us to make an exceedingly difficult decision regarding our holiday schedule. We regret to announce that the park will not be open on Christmas day this year. Given current circumstances, we do not have the resources required to deliver a user experience that is consistent with our standards for your safe enjoyment of our facilities. We know that this is deeply disappointing for many of you who include time at the Lake as part of your holiday traditions. We are sorry that we cannot share in your Christmas day celebrations.

Our amended holiday hours are as follows:

December 24th 9:00 am to 8:00 pm
December 25th closed
December 26th 9:00 am to 9:00 pm

December 31st 9:00 am to 8:00 pm
January 1st Noon to 8:00 pm


Sincerely,
The Board of Directors and Management of Midnapore Lake

Incident Update
On Saturday, a staff member who was operating a piece of equipment to clean the skate path fell through the ice on the pathway. The staff member is fine. This incident remains under investigation by Occupational Health and Safety. The lake ice remains closed for use until the investigation is complete.

The upper rink is open for pleasure skating only. Please respect the social distance rule.

The toboggan hill is ice covered and rough. It is open however users should not venture onto the ice.

Lake front home owners may have use of the rinks they have built however may not venture onto the lake any further than their rink.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Winter Operations - Update
COVID 19 Update

Following yesterday's provincial announcement Midnapore Lake will remain open for pleasure skating, tobogganing and ice fishing. Effective December 8th, outdoor social gatherings are prohibited and park entry is now restricted to members only. We regret that guests will not be permitted at this time. When on site, only those members who are all from the same household may associate together. All members who are not from the same household must practice social distancing. This operating change will remain in effect until such time that the provincial government repeals this protocol.

Skating is temporarily closed due to ice conditions. We will update as conditions improve.
