YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — The Lily Pond at Mill Creek Park has been closed to ice skaters until further notice.

According to officials with the metro park, Saturday’s warm weather caused holes to develop on the pond, making the surface unsafe.

This week marked the first time in more than 20 years that ice on the pond was thick enough to allow for ice skaters.

Officials hope the expected colder weather this coming week will refreeze the water so the winter activities can resume.
