And you thought it was just outside your door....
For anyone who is having trouble with the heat, head over to the senior center on Stafford Avenue, which is open from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. through Friday to offer a free, cool spot to chill.
You can also hit one of the city's two outdoor public pools -- in Rockwell and Page parks -- or one of the city's three spray/splash pools, which are really like big, fun, colorful sprinkers. They're in Rockwell and Page parks, closing at and at Stocks Playground.
Swimming pools close at 7 at Rockwell, 8 at Page. Sprinkers are off at 6 p.m. at Stocks and at 6:45 at the other two parks.
Don't forget your friendly local libraries. They're nice places to beat the heat as well.
