Skating outdoors, the way nature intended, requires all of us to take care of the environment we play in. While the lake is frozen, it will eventually thaw, and make way to a beautiful lake enjoyed by so many in the summer months. We strive to not leave a single piece of trash or equipment to be good stewards of the space we get to call home for a weekend in January.
The open space across from Lake Nokomis is a full complex of softball fields in the summer. There’s no way we can be both good stewards of the athletic fields and use them as our parking space.
We will be changing Lake Nokomis Parkway to a one way starting at 4pm on Thursday through 6pm on Sunday, and having everyone park on one side (left side) of the road. Obviously, this will cause a bit of a walk for some.
Here’s the plan and ways to best get to Nokomis:
This worked out just fine last year. In fact, several people told us that they chose to walk across the lake and it was an incredibly refreshing walk.
Thanks for your understanding and support for doing the right thing.
