Where to Cool Off The Next Few Days

In anticipation of the sunny, hot and humid 96° we’re expected to get starting tomorrow, Wednesday, June 20, local pools are either opening early or extending hours.

The 2012 Montclair Pool season doesn’t open until Friday, June 22, but Essex Pool will open two days earlier. Go cool off on Wednesday, June 20 and Thursday, June 21 from 1 pm – 7 pm. All three pools open for the season Friday, June 22. Pool badges are available at the Department of Recreation & Cultural Affairs office, 205 Claremont Avenue, Montclair, Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Badges cost $225 for a family. They may also be purchased online.

The Glen Ridge Community Pool will be open to members starting tomorrow, from 3 – 8 pm and from this Thursday through Labor Day from 10 am – 8 pm. If you are not a member yet and would like to stay cool during the impeding heat wave, memberships are still available if you would like to join. You can find more info online.

Of course, you can check out all the other pool option in our area here and don’t forget our pool safety tips!

Heats this extreme are especially dangerous for kids, particularly little kids. Check out our Heat Safety Tips from a local pediatrician.

Rita’s Italian Ice is offering Regular Ice’s for just $ on Wednesday, June 20 at all locations, all day!

As for me, I plan to keep cool by drinking one of these and staying in an air conditioned room.
