Edmonton Embraces the Cold by Turning Park Paths Into Frozen Skating Trails

If you live in Edmonton, Alberta, you just accept that it's going to be freezing cold all winter.
 The city embraces the inevitable cold. While other towns have specific vehicles for removing snow and ice from streets (which Edmonton has, too), city workers go out early in the morning and spray water on park paths to make them more slippery! Quite a few layers later, there is a sheet of ice up to a foot thick over park trails. Time to strap on your skates!
The man behind the frozen trails is architect Matt Gibbs. more
