It's all because of the heat wave that's gripped the city, sending temperatures soaring close to 40 C.
Seven public swimming pools around the city will now be operating until 11:45 p.m. starting tonight, weather permitting, until the heat wave is cancelled. These pools include:
Pools during the extended hours starting at 8 p.m. will be walk-in only and not taking reservations. Capacity limits and physicial distancing rules will remain in place.
