All lakes are “Unsafe for Skating” unless posted otherwise. A minimum of six (6) inches of hard and clear ice, measured in multiple locations across the body of water, is necessary before consideration can be given to posting a lake safe for skating. There are currently NO lakes safe for skating.
Several of the lakes in Kansas City are stocked periodically by the Missouri Department of Conservation. For a complete list of the lakes stocked, visit the Missouri Department of Conservation.
