Decommissioning of Ice Castles ongoing

The decommissioning of Ice Castles at The Forks National Historic Site will begin March 27 and continue for the next few weeks.

To accomplish this, clean portions of ice structures will be moved from the event site onto the nearby riverbank via established pathways, where they can melt into the river. Any ice that contains debris will be moved to a fenced-off section of the field located between the playground and the river. The Ice Castles staff will remove debris from these ice portions as they melt. The ice base located at the event site will be continually broken up and spread out to facilitate a faster melt and to minimize any water pooling on the site.

For public safety purposes, the riverwalk has been closed off and fencing has been installed around the north and south fields where the ice portions are currently melting. The fencing will remain until all the ice and debris is gone.
