Parks Department News

 
Outdoor Skating at Jaycee Beach 
Parks crews have cleared a skating pathway on the ice at Jaycee Beach to make a new outdoor skating facility. A wind shelter building is provided for the comfort of skaters. Users are urged to use caution when skating, as there may be cracks on the ice. Crews will monitor the ice on a regular basis and will flood the ice when required.

Unauthorized vehicles are not allowed on the ice. Please call the parks department at 786-1754 if you have any questions.

Elm Pruning 
Contractors are near completion of the Elm tree-pruning contract. The City of Yorkton has done tree pruning for the last 8 years on elm trees in response to the ongoing threat of Dutch Elm Disease. Deadwood in elm trees provides an entry for the elm bark beetle. Properly pruned trees and the removal of deadwood go a long way to fend off the bark beetle. All elm trees should be pruned over a 10-year period. If you have elm trees on your property, you would be well advised to have them pruned. Call the City of Yorkton, Parks Department if you require any additional information.

Back Lane Access 
There have been a few instances with trees inhibiting access to back lanes. Typically, trees or shrubs in the back lanes belong to the resident and it is the residents' responsibility to maintain free and clear access to the back lane for vehicular access. Trees that get damaged by vehicles in the back lane will suffer - this is detrimental to the tree's health. Drive down your back lane and check out whether there is clear access to the lane that borders your property.

Outdoor Rinks
There have been a couple incidents where the outdoor rink hockey nets have disappeared and were later found on school outdoor rinks. Users are reminded that the hockey nets on city rinks are to remain on city rinks. Your co-operation in this matter is appreciated.
