There will be an 11:45 p.m. closing time at seven Toronto outdoor pools on Monday evening because of the sweltering heat. This is an occasion that only happens when Environment Canada issues a heat warning that lasts for three days or more. What better way to make the most out of the uncomfortable mugginess than to take advantage of extended pool hours?
Looking to cool off? We are keeping 7 of our outdoor pools open, weather permitting, until 11:45 p.m. tonight. Loca… https://t.co/KoEg1dAnC2— City of Toronto (@City of Toronto)1564421691.0
