Oneonta Police Warn:

No Skating in Neahwa

ONEONTA – It may chilly out, but Oneonta Police have issued a warning that Hodges Pond in Neahwa Park is not open for skating.

“The ice on the pond has not reached a safe level of thickness to allow ice skating or any type of activities on the ice,” said  Lieutenant Doug Brenner in a press release.  “The risk of falling through the ice and into the freezing cold water remains significant. Anyone who is found to be on pond will be asked to leave immediately.

For the safety of all, please do not wander onto the ice for any reason.  In the event of an emergency on the pond call 911 immediately and remain on the scene until emergency crews arrive.”
