Stephen Lake, Cosmo-Bethel Closed for Ice Skating, Ice Fishing, Respectively

Feb 18, 2021

Just days after lake ice became thick enough for ice skating and ice fishing locally, Columbia Parks and Recreation announced today that the activities were being shut down, the Columbia Missourian reports.

Parks & Rec recently gave the go-ahead for ice skating at Stephens Lake Park and ice fishing at Cosmo-Bethel Park, but the conditions are now considered to be unsafe, Parks & Rec said in a news release.

According to the release, signs are up at both parks to warn those interested that the lakes are no longer open for skating and fishing.
