Cornwall - Jul. 20, 2011 - In light of the hot and humid weather being forecast for the next few days, the City of Cornwall is offering free swims at its outdoor pools on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evening from 6 pm to 8 pm.

“This will provide residents with the opportunity to cool down a bit before they go to bed,” said Christine Lefebvre, Division Manager, Parks and Recreation.

Along with the free evening swims, the six outdoor pools are also open for free swimming each weekday from 1 pm to 4 pm. Residents are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to help cope with the hot and humid temperatures.

The City operates six outdoor pools in the following neighbourhood parks:

  • Mattice Park (Edward and Lennox Streets)

  • St. Joseph Park (Easton Avenue and Jarvis Street)

  • Reg Campbell Park (Leitch Drive and Fraser Avenue)

  • St. Francis de Sales Park (Second Street West, next to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 297)

  • Terry Fox Park (Mercier and Ross Avenues)

  • Riverdale Park (Riverdale Avenue and Dover Road)

    Beyond the outdoor pools, residents can also make use of the Aquatic Centre or the splashpads in Lamoureux Park and St. Theresa Park (on Thirteenth Street). The splashpads are open throughout the day, and they are free to use.

    “The splashpads offer a great way for young children to cool down,” said Mrs. Lefebvre.

    Residents who are looking to stay cool can also take advantage of the air conditioning at the Benson Centre, Cornwall Civic Complex and Cornwall Public Library.

    On Tuesday, the Eastern Ontario Health Unit issued a severe heat and humidity advisory for Cornwall and the surrounding area. A heat advisory is issued when the humidex is expected to be 36 C or higher for at least two consecutive days.
