Make a splash at these late-night Toronto region watering holes
  
It's going to be a long, hot summer. To help beat the heat, five outdoor
swimming pools operated by the City of Toronto Department of Parks and
Recreation will stay open late on warm, humid nights.

But it all depends on the weather.

Pool hours will be extended if the air temperature goes beyond 30 degrees
Celsius and the forecast is for continued hot weather conditions. Each pool
will then remain open until 12:45 a.m. Lifeguards will stay on duty to ensure
water safety.

The five pool are Alex Duff (north side of Bloor Street, west of Christie
Street), Alexandra Park (south east corner of Bathurst Street and Dundas Street
West), Giovanni Caboto - Earlscourt (south side of St. Clair Avenue, west of
Lansdowne), Monarch Park (three blocks west of Coxwell Avenue, south of
Danforth Avenue) and Regent Park (south of Gerrard Street, east of Sackville
Street). These pools now usually close at 10:00 p.m.

A decision to keep the pools open will be made every day at 3:00 p.m. by Parks
and Recreation staff based on current weather conditions. We'll play it one
day at a time.

So, before taking the plunge, call the Toronto Region Parks and Recreation Late
Night Pool Hotline at (416) 392-1899 after 3:00 p.m. to find out if the pools
are open late tonight.
