As people look for ways to stay active and enjoy the winter weather, MPS would like to remind residents to do so in a respectful and lawful manner. There are many public areas to enjoy different activities on and around Lake Minnewasta and the Dead Horse Creek, however venturing too far off the ice or trails could be trespassing. We would like to remind people to be respectful of property owners in and around these areas and ask that you respect their right to privacy and regulation of movement on their property.
