Mill Pond at Alexandria's Island Park was recently cleared for hockey and skating, with the ice more than 8 inches thick, says North Glengarry Recreation Director Terry Gilmer.

With the recent mild weather, there are some wet patches on top of the ice now, which likely will be exacerbated Wednesday. However, after that, the weather forecast looks favourable, with Gilmer saying he expects township staff will then be able to flood and maintain the surface for all to enjoy.

Fingers are crossed that conditions will allow for the planned 3-on-3 hockey tournament on Family Day.
