  1. It’s about 40 degrees outside today. Where were the brains of those going out on the lake in that kind of weather?!? There certainly were times when Lakewooders were out on the lake, but not when the weather is so much above freezing. THe lake has to be about a foot thick for it to be safe for people. PLease, people, use your brains and don’t just follow other fools.

  2. it’s not just that you need a license to fish. going on that frozen lake is very dangerous and i don’t know why people risk it. there are signs saying “no ice skating. if, god forbid, someone should fall through that ice there are going to be very freezing consequences. anyone should think twice before going on that lake. it is absolutely not recommended. people, if you want to go ice skating, go to a ice skating rink. i’m so happy the police asked them to go off the lake cause someone could have been seriously injured. thank you lpd for a job well done.

  3. Yes, there were times when we use to be out on the lake and I believe the little pond closest to Rt. 9 is the spot where people use to ice skate as well. It would be nice to see alot of these fun winter activities return to Lakewood but there are alot of people that lack the knowledge, skills, training and common sense which leads to accidents. There is alot of knowledge to be had before one travels onto the ice, you need to know exactly how thick the ice is before you plan on doing any type of ice related sport and this only comes with experience and training, then you need to know what safety measures to take while on the ice and lastly how to make the ice safe when you leave especially if your ice fishing.

  4. Years ago Lakewood created the “Safety Pond” for little children. This was for them to safely be able to splash in the water in the summer and ice skate on in the winter. It was made very shallow for the children safety. I believe if you went on it when it is iced over you wouldn’t get your knees wet if you fell through.

  5. LPD should send someone over to south lake side on the corner or south lake and hope chapel, all the children who are sledding there it’s no problem the problem is the parent’s who are parking along both side of southlake the cars that are traveling on south lake are having a hard time getting throught they should park some where else the traffic is becoming a problem
