Old Town Alexandria And Del Ray Pools Help You Cool Down Under Hot Temps
Yes, you could fry an egg on the asphalt today, but the Old Town Alexandria and Del Ray Pools have extended hours to help you stay cool. The City of Alexandria issued an announcement earlier today:
Due to the extreme heat, the Memorial Pool, located at 901 Wythe St., will open from noon to 6 p.m., and the Warwick Pool, located at 3301 Landover St., will open from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 21 and Friday, June 22. Admission will be free to all City residents. Memorial Pool, normally only open to residents 13 years of age and younger, will be open to all residents this Thursday and Friday. All children 12 years of age and younger must be accompanied and supervised at all times by an adult 18 years of age and over. Children under age 6 must be accompanied by an adult eighteen years and older. Children must be in proper bathing attire at all times, and within arm’s length of the adult when in the pool. Regular summer operating hours for the Old Town and Warwick Pools begin Saturday, June 23, and for the Memorial Pool on Monday, June 25.
So if the kids are bored and want to stay cool, take them out to the pool! Remember to carry plenty of water and apply the appropriate sunscreen for added protection.
