City Offers Several Ways to Escape the Heat

The City of Windsor wants to remind residents that there are plenty of places to cool off while the region experiences extremely hot and humid conditions.

The City’s six outdoor pools are now open and residents can reserve their swim time by visiting the ActiveWindsor.ca website. Recreational swim times, fit lanes and aqua fit opportunities are available. People can also take advantage of seven splash pads and Sandpoint Beach to cool off. Windsor’s Public Libraries are another option for those looking to escape the heat.

The H4 (Housing, Homelessness Help Hub) day program at Windsor Water World remains open and available for individuals in our community who are experiencing homelessness. This location, while providing shelter from the heat, also allows for more physical distancing within our shelter system. The program is open, with capacity limits, seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

For information and tips on beating the heat, please visit the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit’s website. Please remember to check on elderly or vulnerable individuals you know who are more susceptible to the heat during these extreme weather conditions.
