Need a place to cool down?

NEWS-LEDGER ONLINE — JUNE 28, 2013 —

With temperatures expected to top 100 degrees for about six days in a row, the City of West Sacramento offers this information about local ‘cooling centers’ available free to those in need:

During the current heat wave, two West Sacramento centers will provide relief:

·The Arthur F. Turner Community Library, 1212 Merkley Ave., will be open both Saturday, June 29 (10 am to 5:30 pm) and Sunday, June 30 (1-5 pm) as a place to escape the hot temperatures this weekend. Contact the Turner Library at (916) 375-6465.

·The West Sacramento Recreation Center, 2801 Jefferson Blvd., is also a cooling center and will be open Saturday and Sunday from 8 am to 8 pm. The Rec Center is also open until 9:30 pm on weekdays (except July 4th when it closes at 5:30 pm). Not only is the Rec Center air conditioned inside, the Rec Center pools can also help keep you cool – Rec Swim is from 1 – 5 pm both Saturday and Sunday. A day pass is $6 for adults, and $4.50 for seniors and students. Contact the Rec Center at (916) 617-4770.

The cooling centers are air-conditioned. Comfortable seating is available. Stay hydrated! Water is available at both cooling center sites, but bringing a re-useable water bottle is recommended. Dress in layers so you can shed layers when in the shade and add to cover skin when in direct sunlight.
